Student Curriculum

The student component of National University's evidence based practice program is designed to increase depth and breadth of exposure to and use of research literature in clinical education and practice. 

We incorporate evidence based practice (EBP) in our professional degree curriculum through: 

  • Introductory EBP knowledge and skill-building activities (4 lecture hours) in the Fundamentals of Natural Medicine (Phase 1 Trimester 1) course
  • EBP1: Research Literacy integrated into the Trimester 2 Public Health Course
  • Two standalone courses (Research Literacy; Study Design and Critical Appraisal; Applied EBP), and an optional Independent Research Study
  • A journal club course during the clinical internship
