PPC II, PPC V & PEBM Journal Club Assignment Guide: Rubric

This guide is focused on the journal club presentation assignment in the EBM I and II courses.


  • Because it is a Zoom session, we will not require students to wear white coats and ID badges, Students are required to wear semi-professional attire.The rubric has been modified because of this change. See the modified rubric on the rubric page of this guide.
  • HSC IV students: A video example of a P4 giving a journal club can be found in the HSC IV AIMS site (see January 22, 2021). She also has a second video explaining how she made decisions about how to do her presentation. She also provided an example of a handout. Please note handouts are optional.

Passing Grade

  • The assignment is worth 32 points.
  • The group must receive a 70% or higher to pass the assignment.
  • A passing grade on the presentation is necessary to pass the course.
  • COM Students: Groups who fail the assignment will need to give a second presentation for the course directors. The grade for the second presentation will be the group's final grade for the assignment.
