Evidence Based Medicine is a find in my practice that I regret having found at a rather late age (although I’m still quite young, do not believe otherwise).
But better late than never. And once I found it I want, not just to study and know it, but to share it. So I decided to create this blog to free up an idea I was hanging around for some time, allowing me to share my teaching vocation, my love for bytes and my hobby for writing and for issues related to medicine.
I’m not an expert in these topics and I’m continuously learning about them, so I apologize in advance if I screw up on any time. Any comments or suggestions from readers of the blog will not only be welcomed, buy deeply appreciated.
The blog creation and responsibility rest with me, Manuel Molina Arias, a Pediatrician since 1991. I am registered with the College of Physicians of Madrid (Ilustre Colegio Oficial de Médicos de Madrid) with the number 28/37,116. Currently I practice at the Gastroenterology Service at the Children’s Hospital La Paz (Hospital Infantil Universitario La Paz), Madrid. I also belong to the Evidence-based Medicine Working Group, shared by the Spanish Association of Pediatrics and the Spanish Association of Primary Care in Pediatrics.
