Internal Medicine Residency

EBM Curriculum PGY1

Clinical Curriculum

Our goal is to train residents who can deal effectively with the full range of medical patients, from chronic multi-system disease to the critically ill. Aside from the necessary clinical experience, the program offers a well-developed academic and research curriculum which allows residents to obtain the skills necessary for a successful career.

Evidence-Based Medicine

McMaster University has acquired an international reputation for its work in evidence-based medicine, and residents can expect to work with some of the leading practitioners in this field. Residents can also expect not only to learn the theoretical principles underlying evidence-based medicine, but how to incorporate these principles into their practice. The residents will find a number of resources available to help them learn evidence-based medicine. 

The Program begins with the formal  PGY1 EBM as part of the Academic Half Day.
