CR Soman Journal Club: 
The journal club was started on December 2013 as a regular monthly activity conducted usually on the third Tuesday of every month, unless otherwise inconvenient. The purpose was to enhance research skills among doctors and post graduate students in medicine and public health. HAP members and other renowned academicians give talks on important and relevant topics on health research, touching on methodology, analysis, presentation, relevance and content update.  Apart from this, participants are encouraged to present critiques of  important published journal articles. This is meeting provides a platform for critical evaluation of current literature whilst building the importance of research in clinical and public health practice.
