Residency Highlights

 

Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) Course

The program recognizes the importance of a solid theoretical understanding of the principles of evidence based medicine and its practical applications in the clinical setting. Accordingly, an interactive weekly journal club and an EBM course for all residents remains an integral part of our program.

Residents present current and landmark journal articles during our weekly journal club moderated by the chief of the division of general internal medicine. Discussions involve study design, research methodologies, statistical principles and clinical applicability of study outcomes.

The small group discussion-style EBM sessions during our clinic week morning curriculum provide a foundation in formulating clinical questions, developing effective research strategies, and critically evaluating literature.
