Welcome to NephJC, the Twitter Nephrology Journal Club.

NephJC meets twice a month to discuss the research, guidelines, and editorials that are driving nephrology forward. We use the open, social media platform, Twitter to allow people across medicine to participate. We regularly get doctors, students, fellows, patients and residents participating in our spirited conversations. After the chat the conversations are archived by Symplur and in Storify. You can also follow our posts on Pubmed.
