Synopsis: Using didactic course material and problem solving learning, participants will be provided with the tools of evidence-based medicine relating to diagnosis, prognosis, therapy and harm. Students will learn to formulate clinical questions so that they can be answered; to critically appraise the evidence for validity and clinical importance; and finally, how to apply the evidence in clinical practice. Students will critically appraise evidence on causation, economic evaluation, guidelines and meta-analysis and develop familiarity with important approaches of assessing quality assurance in medical practice.

Assessment: Two critical appraisal reports (25%) + Ten proforma literature evaluation reports (50%) + One written report (25%). The reflective journal maintained throughout this subject also will be submitted for assessment as a Pass/Fail at the completion of the subject.
