Journal Club

Designing Clinical Space Through Knowledge

Here at the Western Vascular Institute, we encourage our trainees, senior house officers and registrars to participate in weekly journal club meetings. The aim of this is to disseminate current vascular knowledge to the wider vascular team.

If you are a new member to the WVI and wish to contribute to the weekly Vascular Journal Club, please contact us using the online form below. Attendees are eligible for Continuing Professional Development (1.0 CPD point per club meeting) when they attend and take part in our weekly journal club.
