IPA Journal Club

The IPA Journal Club (JC), moderated by Jack Drescher, MD, is a project of the IPA Communications Committee. It will meet 5-6 times per academic year for 75 minutes. Each meeting, in a webinar format, will be in English, and will feature a guest author who will discuss with registrants an article they have published. The meetings will be recorded and posted online at the IPA YouTube channel for viewing by the general public.
