Journal Club: Landmark medical trials at your fingertips
By Peripheral Brain, LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Journal Club reviews the top articles in internal medicine, and puts landmark trials at your fingertips. Written by physicians, Journal Club's article reviews are distilled into bite-size morsels that clinicians can digest quickly. Think of it as CliffsNotes for medical research. We do the hard work reviewing the literature so that you can focus on what's most important: patient care.

What's New in Version 1.7.1
It's July again, and so we send an excited welcome to new medical students, residents, and fellows! Even though we each have distinct plans for the coming year, one thing is for sure: there will be challenges along the way. And Journal Club wants to help, even if it's a small thing like helping you master the medical literature.
This latest version of Journal Club rights a few wrongs in the prior version, and makes things a bit faster too. This is just one incremental step towards keeping Journal Club in tip-top shape for our readers. We'd love it if you'd take a minute to leave us a review on the App Store. Your voice really counts!
Again, welcome to all new trainees! Here's to a great first year!

Amazing pocket reference
It is the expectation that any high-level healthcare provider practice utilizing the highest quality evidence available. Of course, memorizing every landmark trial is unrealistic; the Journal Club offers a great way to quickly reference landmark clinical trials. Additionally, the information is provided in a complete, intuitive, and consistent fashion. Overall, a must-have for those working in healthcare.
No anesthesia section
I was very disappointed to see that the current version of this app lacks an anesthesiology section, despite it being shown in the screenshots in the App Store. I paid for this app with that notion in mind, being an Anesthesiology resident... after inquiring, I was told that the anesthesia articles were now captured under the critical care section, but that doesn't really seem to be the case... love the idea for this app but disappointed that my specialty isn't really covered as it was billed to be...
Crashing like crazy on my iPad Mini 4, especially when I try to sort by date. Also, the touch accuracy is totally off. I have to touch below what I want to select.
Edit: working fine again
