    This app is not meant to give us as physicians the final word but a starting point to conduct a systematic review.
  • Amazing pocket reference

    It is the expectation that any high-level healthcare provider practice utilizing the highest quality evidence available. Of course, memorizing every landmark trial is unrealistic; the Journal Club offers a great way to quickly reference landmark clinical trials. Additionally, the information is provided in a complete, intuitive, and consistent fashion. Overall, a must-have for those working in healthcare.
  • Great app

    Very good app to have for medical profesionales.
  • Helpful articles but where is the anesthesia section?

    I like the concept of app and have found a couple useful papers in it, but I feel like I was duped into purchasing it. The advertisement photo shows an anesthesia section, and I was incredibly disappointed to find that the actual app does not include this specialty (particularly disappointing as in an anesthesia resident).
  • No anesthesia section

    I was very disappointed to see that the current version of this app lacks an anesthesiology section, despite it being shown in the screenshots in the App Store. I paid for this app with that notion in mind, being an Anesthesiology resident... after inquiring, I was told that the anesthesia articles were now captured under the critical care section, but that doesn't really seem to be the case... love the idea for this app but disappointed that my specialty isn't really covered as it was billed to be...
  • Nice start

    Decent start. Many papers missing. Incomplete cross-referencing. Would benefit from larger database
  • Crashing

    Crashing like crazy on my iPad Mini 4, especially when I try to sort by date. Also, the touch accuracy is totally off. I have to touch below what I want to select. Edit: working fine again
  • Very concise and practical

    An amazing IM intern showed me Journal Club on a a research heavy Stroke Service. It's role on my phone is different than UpToDate's function because of its depth in landmark studies. I recommend it for med students encountering research heavy rotations and those with a genuine interest in navigating landmark studies.
