JVS Online Journal Club

Through active presentation and participation in this completely online Journal Club, we educate vascular surgical trainees in the interpretation of high-level clinical and basic science articles and how to appropriately apply the information to clinical practice and future research.

Logo for JV Online Journal Club


  • Online via Zoom, recorded
  • Monthly (second Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday of each month)
  • Two articles, both contemporaneous from the Journals of Vascular Surgery
  • Format for each article presentation
    • Introductory comments by the hosting faculty member
