NEJM Journal Watch is a series of topic-specific newsletters written for physicians and other health professionals. It is published by the Massachusetts Medical Society and is a sibling publication to the New England Journal of Medicine.

NEJM Journal Watch distributes its products via print, e-mail, and its website.


The goal of NEJM Journal Watch is to provide physicians and allied health professionals with current, clinically focused information and commentary regarding their respective practice areas and medical disciplines. The organization accomplishes this by utilizing a board of physician/editors who closely monitor scientific and medical journals for relevant articles, summarize the articles, and provide additional commentary about the topic.

NEJM Journal Watch divides its content into areas of primary care, specialty care, and specific watch topics.
