British and US surveys document that the time dedicated weekly by physicians to the critical evaluation of biomedical journals is limited and should be expanded. This in the light of the fact that clinicians increasingly need controlled and updated medical information. The critical interest and competence in the evaluation of medical literature may be taught at the University. Universities, and in particular Medical Schools, include, among their tasks, education, research and health care. A modern and effective education in the critical analysis of biomedical journals should represent an important methodological feature of Medical Schools, given that it can constitute an instrument for the reasoned analysis of the profile of biomedical research and for the synthesis and incorporation of research results into daily clinical practice.
