We read with excitement the systematic review on how to teach evidence-based medicine (EBM) to medical trainees.1 The conclusions of the paper1 represent a concise and accurate reflection of this large synthesis of evidence. Unfortunately, we were left reflecting not on the evidence base illuminated by this review, but on the missed opportunities we will highlight herein. These examples are not in any way meant to represent a specific set of criticisms of this work,1 but, rather, are intended as exemplars of wider methodological issues that currently exist within much published material on the synthesis of evidence in health care education
