Journal Club: JAMA’s Rational Clinical Exam Series
Apr 28 @ 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM

The Journal Club will be hosting an event on April 28th at 6 PM that should be useful to all! We will be discussing how to apply evidence to the process of diagnostic reasoning by discussing articles from JAMA’s Rational Clinical Exam series with Dr. Callender, an internal medicine physician and advocate for evidence based medicine who will share his experience and perspective applying data to practice.

Each article reviews the evidence associated with different elements of the exam associated with a particular clinical question (e.g. Does this patient have malaria?). This data can help us to gain diagnostic clarity in challenging situations, grow more confident with our choice of physical exam tests, and spare patients expensive tests that may have associated risks. The articles are brief and we will present key points, so don’t worry if you are not able to read through them all prior to the meeting!

During this meeting we will be presenting the articles associated with assessing patients for cirrhosis, mononucleosis, ectopic pregnancy, and fluid responsiveness in shock, which are attached below. Please add your name to this spreadsheet so we have an idea of attendance. 

Please reach out to Zoe ( with any questions.

Impostor Syndrome Discussion
May 6 @ 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Hosted by the the Psychiatry Interest Group, this meeting will focus on Impostor Syndrome (IS) in Medicine.

Some of you may have experienced IS personally, or have seen friends/family members struggle with this. IS is very prevalent in medicine, and there are many studies supporting its presence in the medical community. Medical students, Residents, Fellows, and Attendings struggle with IS, and over the past few years, there has been more attention brought to it. 

We are hosting an open discussion zoom meeting for you to share your experience with IS, or your thoughts about IS. Dr. Robin LeGallo will help run this session, she will share her experience with IS and her coping strategies. We will have 2 Psychiatry residents help with this session as well (Dr. Kim Curtis, and Dr. Erawadi Singh). 

If you are interested in attending this session, please sign up here. A zoom link will only be sent out to those that sign up.
