    In today's ever advancing world of medicine, there is always new data and research out that one must be familiar with. I was wondering what journals that one must at least browse through to keep themselves in the know. Each specialty has its own top journal(s) and I wanted to know what the consensus was.

    Medicine : NEJM, Lancet, Circulation, JAMA

    Ophtho : Ophthalmology

    Fell free to add any other specialties and the corresponding journals!

    I'm not sure I would include JAMA on the list--in fact, I'm sure I wouldn't.

    I do agree about JAMA - I just included it b/c in the past there have been some impacting articles/studies that were published in it. Its not on the same level as the other medicine journals.

    Circulation??? Good journal, but I'm not sure it belongs next to NEJM and Lancet...

    I think it's worthwhile for most doctors (and probably all in primary care) to check American Family Physician every now and then.

    The most basic stuff is likely what patients ask about most...
