"I found the intellectual environment to be very collegial, but also very rigorous. It was the perfect complement to my prior experience in EBM, providing both practical tools and renewed enthusiasm to effectively teach EBM in my chief residency and beyond."
"This was the most helpful conference I have ever attended. I wasn't sure what to expect, and was quite anxious about the topic. I left feeling like EBCP was within my grasp, and excited to design a new EBM curriculum for our resident trainees."
"The experience was very positive and we gained a lot from this workshop. I have shared this experience with many colleagues here in Toronto and with a friend in Montréal. I encouraged them to participate in this workshop next year."
“A great workshop in which you gain a lot of knowledge in Evidence Based Medicine, and the understanding on how to apply that knowledge to clinical practice.”
James D. Strange
“Indeed enjoyable and a good learning experience.”
"The week was intense, diving into detailed information on evidence-based research applicability, innovative teaching methods, in an incredibly invaluable inter-professional and inter-disciplinary setting. With this efficient and intense protocol, we streamlined our learning and processing of vast amounts of material. The week concluded with excitement!"
"It was a great way to meet people in my field and hear their pearls for teaching EBCP at the bedside. The McMaster course brings challenging topics to life with hands-on learning techniques and chance to meet some of the greatest minds in medicine."
“A great experience! A strong advice not to miss this excellent opportunity of learning EBM”

"I attended this workshop three times in a row so far. Every time, I learned something new that I incorporated in my teaching or practice."
"Workshop participants get clear guidance and lots of practice doing exercises that develop teaching and critical thinking skills. Tutors are very experienced and combine a relaxed atmosphere with rigorous instruction. Group learning adds variety of ideas and approaches that really help to explain concepts. Learned a lot and enjoyed it all."
"This is a great way to be immersed in evidence based medicine and to have a focused learning environment. The tutors tailor the small group sessions to the interests of the students, creating an opportunity for targeted growth."
“The Teaching EBCP workshop at McMaster is great! You get to spend an entire week with individuals from around the globe who share a common interest with you. I learned several new, clever techniques for teaching EBCP to my learners.”
"The "How to Teach EBM" workshop at McMaster University was one of, if not the best, medical meeting I have attended in my 20 years of clinical practice. What made this workshop so good was the clear focus on how to teach EBM concepts and the use of small group learning experiences to solidify key EBM concepts. I was in one of the family practice groups and we had outstanding tutors and an excellent tutor trainee. We had a wonderful mix of medical providers and pharmacists as well as an excellent librarian resource. The collegial attitude amongst our group members was a key element in making the experience a success. This workshop was just that - a workshop i.e. heavy on participation in the small group sessions through developing presentations on key EBM concepts and presenting these to our group. Overall, an excellent workshop and one I would highly recommend to colleagues."
