Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is a part of the practice-based learning and improvement core competency. Although the ACGME requires training programs to teach residents EBM principles, curricula vary widely.

Researchers surveyed emergency medicine program directors and associate program directors to determine their opinions and expectations for EBM curriculum and skill sets.

Respondents identified the following as the most important resident skill sets:

  • Identify flawed research (45%)
  • Apply research findings to patient care (43%)
  • Comprehend research methodology (33%)
