During our studies, and afterwards, we are taught to believe in the concept of Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM). But how objective is EBM? Can we blindly trust its truths, or is it time to open our eyes?
We hosted an open discussion night where future doctors and/or researchers, learned to approach research more critically, and got new insights on how to improve medical science.
After last year’s successful lecture on viroscience and bioterrorism, this second evening was organised especially for all life science masters & PhD students of the UMC Utrecht, and all those otherwise interested. The focus was on a discussion with an extraordinary researcher. For this occasion, we had invited prof. dr. Grobbee, professor in clinical epidemiology and chairman of the cardiovascular center in the UMCU, to join us in this discussion.
