Journal Club

Journal Club & Webinars

The goal of the Assembly on Thoracic Oncology Journal Club is to provide perspective on what’s important to thoracic oncology clinicians and researchers.  We aim to have the Assembly on Thoracic Oncology Journal Club provide an insider’s view of the latest news, evidence, and opinions in the world of thoracic oncology.  We designed our Journal Club to be a go-to resource for the myriad clinicians who care for patients with thoracic malignancies and the researchers who are studying ways to improve that care. Using a webinar or text-based journal club format, we will call your attention to new studies and developments in the basic and clinical sciences. We will also highlight non-lung thoracic oncology papers as well as the papers and advancements that non-pulmonologists are reading, as well as new developments and evidence in the world of advanced bronchoscopy and interventional pulmonology.

We want our Journal Club to cater to your needs so that it becomes an important resource. We’ll do our best to guess what you want but please give us feedback (toa@thoracic.org). We like kudos but we’d rather hear what we can do better to meet your needs. If you are interesting in contributing, please contact us as well.
