The Thomas Jefferson Medicine Forum (TJM) is an annual publication of scholarly works produced by Thomas Jefferson Internal Medicine residents. TJM includes a wide variety of case presentations, individual research pursuits, reviews, and images reflecting important disease processes. The editors of TJM are exclusively Jefferson IM residents. The TJM gives our residents both publishing and editing experience that is invaluable and translatable to careers long after residency.
