"The third-year internal medicine clerkship's role in the education of medical students is to teach fundamental knowledge and develop skills and behaviors necessary to care for adult patients, regardless of the students' final career paths. In the context of caring for patients, medical students learn a logical approach to diagnosis of significant symptoms and signs, basic therapeutic approaches to common diseases ranging from emergent to chronic, and an understanding of the role of the internist in caring for people across the spectrum from healthy to critically ill." (Woolliscroft, JO. The Internal Medicine Clerkship and the National Debate on Primary Care Education. Am J Med. 1994;96:IV-VII

One of the requirements of your Internal Medicine Clerkship is the completion of a LEARNING ISSUE. This assignment requires that you follow the steps of evidence-based practice (EBP) to locate information about a clinical question. If you need an EBM/EBP refresher, look below!

[Details for the Learning Issue assignment are available in Blackboard.]
