Journal Clubs and Seminars

Journal club and seminar requirements vary between themes. Theme-specific requirements can be found in the training plan located in the side bar menu of each theme page.

Journal Clubs

Journal clubs are courses focused on discussion and review of journal articles. They are taught by a range of GBS faculty, and course structure varies by instructor. Students are encouraged to attend journal clubs throughout their time in the program. Journal club courses help students develop competency in several areas: fundamental understanding of modern research topics, scientific writing, critical evaluation of research findings, and oral presentation skills. There are many diverse journal clubs taught every semester. 



Seminar courses are a series of presentations/discussions on various topics, often aligned with a GBS theme.


Please reference the GBS Course Catalog for a list of journal clubs and seminars. Each course offering is subject to change.
