Who's responsible for Wiki Journal Club?

Wiki Journal Club was created during internal medicine residency at Stanford and Georgetown and has grown to a collaborative project incorporating editors from around the world.

Why'd you guys start this?

Tim and Dave were classmates at the University of Vermont (UVM) College of Medicine and developed coursework reviews shared with the rest of the class on the school-hosted, student-accessible, closed-platform wiki. This work was an invaluable experience. Classmates loved the content and helped expand and refine it. Not too long after, Dave and Manny met in residency at Stanford and were thinking about writing a primer on the medical literature. While Tim was in residency at Georgetown, he and Dave reminisced about the UVM course wiki and got on to discussing a broader approach that could help people worldwide. WJC was officially founded on September 17, 2011.
