A monthly journal club for residents that focuses on research methods and statistics is described. Detailed discussions and analyses of clinical research articles by the residents are used to teach the important concepts and principles of medical research in a manner useful to the practicing physician. Discussion of research articles is structured by a guide for presenting the research articles to the group and by stimulus questions that address specific methodological issues related to the study being examined. Residents have been enthusiastic in their evaluation of the journal club; the experience has stimulated some of them to conduct their own research studies.
