The study club meets monthly normally from 6:30-8:30 on the first Tuesday of each month.  In 2021 we will be having virtual meetings for the first half of the year then hope to transition our meetings to  the Cafe at 901 Campus Dr in Daly City


The meetings consist of case reviews and discussions. Members are encouraged to bring cases for discussion.  Guest speakers also present on a number of different topics.

Please check the Services tab for our tentative calendar for 2021 along  with a membership application form.  We look forward to having you as a member of our study club.
