A 21st Century Clinician who cannot critically read a study is as unprepared as one who cannot take a blood pressure or examine the cardiovascular system.” Glasziou et al. BMJ 2008:337:704-705
Given the sheer volume of published papers and their variable quality even in high impact journals, having skills to carefully appraise scientific literature to answer current clinical questions is necessary.

The seminar schedule may be subject to change. Notification of any changes regarding topics, locations, presenters, and times, will be via email, website, and through EventBrite.
