Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences JOURNAL CLUB

Journal Club is intended for graduate students to become familiar with the primary scientific literature by learning to select, read, analyze, understand, and orally summarize original research papers. Graduate students will also hone their scientific and critical writing skills. Meetings will be held once per week during the regular academic semester during which one student will present the research article and lead in the discussion. All students will prepare for each discussion in advance and will contribute to the analysis and discussion of the paper. In this journal club, papers will be presented on a diverse set of topics related to our fields of research performed at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health.
