Abstract

Background: Running standard journal clubs is one of the important goals of postgraduate education. Students should update their knowledge and learn critical appraisal skill. This study aimed to compare quality of journal clubs in Mashhad Dental School in order to improve educational and appraisal structure of journal clubs. Methods: This quasi-experimental study was conducted on journal clubs of Mashhad dental school. Journal clubs were evaluated and compared using a valid and reliable (r= 0.74) checklist before and after an educational workshop. Data were analyzed using SPSS: 11.5 by paired T-Test (CI= 95 ) Results: There was a significant difference before and after intervention in terms of educational structure, however no critical appraisal was conducted. Conclusion: As to the results, it is recommended to refresh faculty members and postgraduate students in terms of educational and appraisal structure of journal clubs. It seems teaching critical appraisal is more important.
