Abstract

In this issue, the Southern Medical Journal presents a series of articles to help students of medicine understand the principles of evidence-based medicine. These articles are not meant to be a comprehensive review, but rather an easy-to-read primer. In this final article, the authors offer suggestions to aid the reader in navigating the ever-expanding amount of information. These tips address a number of points that are commonly encountered in the medical literature, but are not all-inclusive.
