A Finger on the Pulse: How to Stay Updated on the Medical Literature

Active from to

It is hard to imagine staying updated when you are still learning the fundamentals. Hopefully you've used NEJM Resident 360 Rotation Prep to read about the landmark articles that underlie the fundamentals of our medical decisions. But how do you stay current with new research? How do you separate the signal from the noise and decide what is relevant to your practice?

Join NEJM Resident 360 for a discussion about keeping up during training and beyond. We look forward to hearing your questions, including:

  • What are the best journal digests or summary emails?
  • Is it enough to read the abstract? When do I need to read the whole paper?
  • What is the best way to keep up – by going to conferences, making a reading list, attending grand rounds, or some other way?
