Introduction: Till date Medical Educators used to teach as they have been taught. In India; even today a largenumber of the doctors working as faculty in Medical Colleges are not really trained to teach. Hence, introducingeducators to the Evidence Based Education System (EBES) and implementation of EBES curriculum is need of thehour. EBES is the integration of professional wisdom with the best available empirical evidence in making decisionsabout how to deliver instructions. Therefore, the purpose of study is to develop and implement EBES Curriculum.Methods: There are various ways to deliver instructions including Evidence Based Medicine (EBM). EBM is theprocess of systematically reviewing, appraising and using clinical research findings to aid the delivery of optimumclinical care to patients. Here, in Sumandeep Vidyapeeth (SV), we introduced EBM on January 23, 2007 but decidedto implement it in phase manner (Phase –I, II, and III). Year wise curriculum for EBM and assessment techniques(Assignments and Annual Examination) was developed. Library resources were enhanced to enable best searches ofcurrent literature. We have also sensitized the educators through inhouse, national and international workshops andalso through an International Conference.Results: Batch of first year MBBS for the year 2010-11 gone through the EBM examination and cleared it.Currently, EBM course is being implemented for 2nd year MBBS batch. Faculty feedback for EBM workshop is asfollows: Overall rating by the participants for teaching EBM session by the resource persons was 85% from verygood to excellent. Rating for searching evidence session was 56% from very good to excellent. However, rating forcritical appraisal of the article session was only 44% from very good to excellent.Conclusion: Based on our findings we conclude that this system is highly effective for delivering teachinginstructions and if we will be able to implement for all four years of MBBS then we will very soon achieve thetarget of not only health for all but also Millennium Development Goals for our area.
