Evidence-Based Practice in Medical Education: Mapping a Research and Critical Analysis Program Against the Sicily Statement

Publication Name

Medical Science Educator


This paper describes how evidence-based practice (EBP) is taught through an integrated curriculum across a 4-year graduate MD program. Mapping of the curriculum to the domains of the Sicily Statement of EBP was an effective approach to evaluate integration of EBP into a graduate medical education program. The longitudinal integration of EBP engages students in multiple opportunities to learn, understand, and apply these concepts. The EBP program incorporates both traditional and innovative teaching approaches and can easily be adapted for other professional courses. This whole-course approach is graduating a new generation of doctors with a sound understanding of EBP.
