In this section of the portal, we will develop a series of modules that consider the hospital itself, as a space, a place, a culture, and an institution.
We also develop modules that consider the medical school and medical education.
The McMaster University School of Medicine, as the birthplace of problem-based health education and evidence-based practice, has influenced medical education and practice around the world.
“Half of what you’ll learn in medical school will be shown to be either dead wrong or out of date within five years of your graduation; the trouble is that nobody can tell you which half—so the most important thing to learn is how to learn on your own.”
--Dave Sackett, (1934-2015) A founder of McMaster School of Medicine, founder of first department of Clinical Epidemiology, founder of journal, Evidence-Based Medicine, first chair of the Cochrane Collaboration.
