Who are required and why there is a need to take EBM Courses?

​All health care professionals and senior health administrative need to attend EBM courses. Medical school and residents need these courses as well.

The importance of including EBM in the residency curriculum is well recognized by many programs in developed countries namely USA, Canada, UK and Australia. The Saudi Council for Health Specialties (SCHS) has incorporated EBM in the residency curricula, as the EBM course is mandatory for all residents before their graduations. A well recognized program is needed to fulfill the requirement of such an important foundation course. The SCHS approached the NGCEBM for conducting EBM courses directed to residents in various specialties with reduced fees (letter No. 1763/3 dated 6/4/1426 H). Being a referral center in KSA and the Gulf region, the NGCEBM in National Guard Health Affairs will assume such responsibility.

Are all EBM Courses accredited with CME hours and if so, how many?

All courses offered by the Center accredited by The Saudi Council. CME hour depends on the number of hours and kind of course.
