Journal Club

The CUA Journal Club is a Twitter-based discussion of timely topics in urology stemming from the most recently published papers in CUAJ. The one-hour, evening sessions are held monthly, with the exception of June and December, and provide participants an opportunity to engage the authors of the papers in an informal “chat.” Furthermore, Journal Club participants can claim a maximum of 1 hour of Section 1 credit under the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
