Abstract

Journal Club sessions are regarded highly effective tools for continued medical education. They aim to keep participants
up to date with the current available literature and may enhance one’s critical reading, interpretation, and discussion
skills. Thus, Journal Clubs should be implemented as part of educational curricula in intensive care medicine. Here,
we provide a conceptual framework that may support medical educators and programme directors to successfully
implement structured Journal Club sessions. Moreover, we discuss the technical aspects and future perspectives of
respective educational formats.
