Abstract

A departmental database, created on an ongoing basis by the output of a regular educational activity: the weekly Current Literature Review Conference or Journal Club, is described. Four core neurology journals are reviewed monthly by a team of an attending physician and a resident. Neurology papers appearing in widely-read medical journals are read bimonthly. A handout containing a summary of each article published in the journal to be reviewed is distributed at the time of the conference and facilities discussion. After 11 months of use, the database (2.4 Mb in size) contains 1327 articles. Information on the articles in the database can be obtained by text search or by specifying a numeric range in the appropriate fields. It is used by the residents and faculty for patient care and to prepare conferences and papers.
