In this special episode, Dr. Justin Morgenstern of First10EM joins us to discuss a 6-step approach to primary literature. His strategy will give you the tools to feel more comfortable with taking an active role in reading and critically evaluating the literature.

Step 1: How do I find a paper to read?

Step 2: Is this paper worth reading?

Step 3: Read the paper

Step 4: Interpret the paper (stats are less important than you think)
