Weekly Video Review

We meet in Keiserman Classroom every Monday at 10AM unless otherwise told. At this time we will be doing a combination of introduction, video review, simulation, research meetings, and journal club.

Each Monday we will be reviewing 2 journal articles. You will receive these through email the prior Thursday.  Review both of these articles in advance so that you are prepared to join in the discussion.
