Evidence-based medicine in dental tertiary education
Feierabend, Stefanie/Gerhardt-Szép, Susanne
The medical Licensure Act schedules to train the future dentist in practical skills as well as science-based. As many homepages and university calenders do not give information on the integration of evidence-based medicine (EbM) into the education, a questionnaire was sent to the ordinaries and their senior physicians of the 30 german universities where dental education is possible.
The integration of EbM into a lecture was specified by 31 departments.
As many lectures/seminars and courses remain without consequences for the students (no test or oral exams) it can hardly be estimated whether a knowledge gain will develop on the long run.
