The Latin American Neurotology Journal Club, was created in 2020 as an initiative by two otolaryngologists to keep updated on field related news and have virtual academic meetings with colleagues. Known neurotologists and other professionals from Latin America are members of this group. Currently, this group is the first academic space for articles discussion and academic exchange between professionals from different areas related to Neurology and Vestibular disorders in Spanish.
Every meeting, one article of a different topic is discussed. Topics are elected by poll and all members read the article for general discussion. Additionally, other specialists, such as Endocrinologists, Gynecologists and Neurologists are invited for some meetings in order to solve questions about related topics and complimentary management of some diseases (i.e D-vitamin use and treatment in benign paroxysmal positional vertigo). From the discussions, ideas related to collaborations and research have been emerged. Some members have also shown their current on-course research works to the rest of the group to have feedback from other colleagues around the region.
The Latin American Neurotology Journal Club meets every third Wednesday at 8:30 PM (EST) via Zoom.
