In 1990, Gordon Guyatt coined the term "evidence-based medicine" to describe the approach to medical education he was applying as Director of the Internal Medicine residency program. The term first appeared in the medical literature in 1991 in an editorial Dr. Guyatt wrote for the ACP Journal Club. Along with Deborah Cook, Dr. Guyatt has co-ordinated the McMaster workshop, bringing together a group of internationally renowned EBM educators.
