Welch Center Seminars

3Opportunities for intellectual engagement at the Center include the formal Clinical Research Grand Rounds conference series, the Welch Center Journal Club,  research-in-progress sessions geared to students, and interest group seminars designed around a particular theme.

Clinical Research Grand Rounds at the Welch Center, sponsored jointly with the Graduate Training Program in Clinical Investigation and the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, meets weekly during the academic year, and is open to the entire the Johns Hopkins community. These conferences provide opportunities for Welch Center faculty and guest scientists to present the results of ongoing, planned, and completed clinical and translational research. Master's and doctoral students in the clinical epidemiology and cardiovascular epidemiology concentrations are required to attend.

Welch Center Journal Club (Research Seminar) meets weekly during the academic year at noon, and is open to all interested trainees and faculty members. Each week a student or faculty member presents a scholarly article with a clinical epidemiology focus to the group and generates a discussion of methodologic issues. Master's and doctoral students in the clinical epidemiology and cardiovascular epidemiology concentrations are required to attend.

Welch Center Research in Progress seminar meets twice a month during the academic year to discuss career development topics such as developing an important research question, how to work with a mentor, and how to review and publish manuscripts. Students receive early faculty feedback on research projects and gain confidence delivering research presentations. Master's and doctoral students in the clinical epidemiology and cardiovascular epidemiology concentrations are required to attend.

Interest Groups meet on a weekly or monthly basis. Topics for discussion focus largely on recent developments in the area of interest, such as recently published scientific articles or new grant ideas.
