Abstract

A new training model for critical appraisal in therapeutics is presented.  Postgraduate trainees in Clinical Pharmacology are assigned to critically appraise scientific papers that faculty members were asked to review by Journals. The manuscripts were discussed in group rounds, allowing teaching of all aspects of therapeutics research. Formal evaluation of this model by trainees revealed high marks for “critical thinking”, “learning study design”, and “how to write / not to write”
