Residency training is an important period when a physician learns and acquires the necessary skills for searching, evaluating and applying medical knowledge. The journal club is an academic event and an important forum for this purpose. The objective of the journal club is to learn and develop a skill to find, appraise and implement practice changing advancements in the medical literature. We report our experience with stata in journal club in teaching EM residentsâ€™ statistics in addition to critical appraisal skills. To understand and utilize the current literature effectively, an understanding of basic statistical methods is essential. We introduced stata while discussing the methods and results section of the article in the journal club to learn application of some common statistical tests. Published studies were selected to illustrate and provide the insight of commonly used statistical concepts. We noted that improved understanding of statistics resulted in increased interest and enthusiasm of residents to participate in journal club. Integrating a statistical software program such as stata in journal club can serve as an important tool to enhance learning. Further studies should be conducted in order to fully utilize these opportunities for enhanced learning of in-training physicians.
