Dear Medical Education readers,
The team supporting the journal ‘Medical Education’ will be hosting its second ever journal club on Twitter. The Publisher has granted free access to the selected article. The article is in the October 2013 issue of Medical Education:
A systematic literature review of undergraduate clinical placements in underserved areas, by Paul E S Crampton, John C McLachlan, and Jan C Illing.
The authors will be ‘live’ and participating in the Twitter journal club. They have proposed some questions to stimulate some discussion. These questions are now posted on the journal blog. Just point your browser to www.mededuc.com and click ’Discuss’. Then in the search box enter the article title to be brought directly to the post.
You can make comments in response to the discussion questions right on the blog, or wait to make comments during the Twitter journal club.
The live Twitter journal club will be on December 10th from 1-2PM GMT. Please note that in order to participate in the live event you must have a twitter account so please sign up now by visiting www.twitter.com. After the Twitter journal club event, the editorial staff will capture the Tweets around the discussion topics and post them to the Medical Education blog to allow those who were unable to participate in the Twitter discussion to read and comment further.
On December 10th at 1PM, the e-Editor team (Twitter username @mededuceeditor) will be on Twitter with the article authors exchanging Tweets around the discussion questions and article. Each tweet will be tagged with ‘#mededucunderserved’, so if you’d like to contribute a comment, please be sure to include that hashtag.
We are looking forward to this exciting event and hope that you are too!
Anuja Jain, e-Editor Intern
