DIG Journal Club

The Dermatology Interest Group (DIG) Journal Club meets twice during the academic year to discuss manuscripts in the field. We present and discuss recent dermatology publications, research, and projects. We hope that this will be an informative and interactive way to learn more about research being done on both a national and institutional level. The journal club is open to any UMass Chan students or students from our sister DIG program at Morehouse School of Medicine. There will be opportunities to share your own research, or to review and present recently published articles for discussion.
