DeLib's involvement in Med 1 focuses on the teaching of Evidence Based Medicine in the MPS1 course. We are integrally involved in designing how the course will be taught, creating teaching materials, and providing in-class instruction.
In recent years, we have worked at finding new ways to bring make the subject relevant and interesting to students. This has focused on the incorporation of standardized patients in class sessions, and the development of online tutorials for use in the MPS1 Canvas page.
Our DeLib Guide provides a variety of resources on EBM, including suggested databases, mobile applications, an introduction to searching PubMed, and even the occasional educational video. We are (almost) always available to help Med 1 students find information relating to their courses.
