BMS 5011: Evidence-Based Medicine

Class Program
Credits 2

The role of Introduction to Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) is to foster students' information literacy and develop an understanding of evidence-based medicine to leverage, create, use, and connect information to patient scenarios. The course is organized around the five elements of evidence-based medicine: ASK, ACQUIRE, APPRAISE, APPLY, ASSESS. Each of those components will be explored in-depth to increase the students' awareness, understanding, and skills. EBM is a semester-long course that encourages information literacy and evidence-based practice and enables student doctors to access, evaluate, and present medical information. Designated student assignments and clinical integration sessions introduce standards, resources, and strategies for understanding and presenting clinical cases.
