From: Peter Wyer
Subject: 2008 McMaster Workshop in Evidence Based Clinical Practice
June 8-June 13 REGISTRATION OPEN


Folks:

This is to announce that registration is now open for the 2008 Annual
Workshop in "How to Teach Evidence-Based Clinical Practice" at
McMaster.  The details are included in the attachment and in the text
insert below.

This is the 'classic' workshop in this area and has served as the
spawning ground for EBM expertise in Emergency Medicine and many other
specialties over the years.  It is run by the founders of EBM itself,
Gordon Guyatt and Deborah Cook.  The EM track is coordinated by
individuals who are also direct the EBM workshops at the  New York
Academy of Medicine.  The latter workshop is currently undergoing an
overhaul and we expect it to resume either later this year or in 2009
in a format that emphasizes the development of gifted academic chief
residents in our specialty.  The McMaster workshop therefore
constitutes the 'guaranteed' opportunity for emergency physicians to
learn and polish skills in this area for the year 2008.

Registration is expected to fill up quickly, hence, if you are
interested, please register right away.

Peter
