If there is one reason above all to come to McMaster it is our tutors. Leading EBM from the beginning, the workshop has succeeded in attracting the best EBHC educators in the world. They come back year after year because of the excitement and innovation they find at the McMaster workshop.

The workshop is offered as a one-week intensive course. Participants will be learning in small groups led by clinical epidemiologists and practitioners from McMaster and other institutions.

Each small group consists of two tutors, one tutor trainee, one research librarian, and up to eight learners.
