Although some physicians have the opportunity to participate in a journal club during residency, many infrequently receive formal instruction on how to critically evaluate a journal article. Systematic guidelines for appraising a clinical journal article are presented and illustrated with examples. Considering each guideline in its respective order may lead to a better understanding of what the literature may offer one's practice.
