Evidence-based health care (EBHC) and its approach to the practice of medicine has gained considerable acceptance among health care professionals. The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) advocates integration of the principles of evidence-based medicine (EBM) into undergraduate training. Promoted as a tool to further learning by inquiry, to steer clear of opinion-based medicine (Sackett et al., 2000), and to help students at all levels of training to assess conscientiously the current best evidence, an increasing number of medical schools in the United States have incorporated it into their curriculum.
