Welcome to NephJC, the Twitter Nephrology Journal Club.

NephJC is a nephrology journal club that uses Twitter to discuss the research, guidelines, and editorials that are driving nephrology. After the chat the conversations are archived by Symplur and in Storify. You can also follow our posts on Pubmed.

Posts about NephJC


The NephJC Book Club is an annual tradition. Every summer we blog our way through a book of medical interest and have a Twitter-based book club discussion.

This was the third year. We read Vanessa Grubb's, Hundreds of Interlaced Fingers.

In 2016 we read Eric Topol's, The Patient Will See You Now

In 2015 we started the book club with Atul Gawande's, Being Mortal
