Why learn research methodology?

Indian J Ophthalmol 2009;57:173-4

Dr Nayak in his editorial in the current issue of the IJO, stresses that whether one does formal research or not, it is really important for all to understand research methodology. Stating that medical research is not given due importance in either the undergraduate or postgraduate curriculum, he explains that all doctors need to know about good research methodology at least to learn to differentiate between good research evidence and poor research evidence and to be able to decide which evidence to adopt for treatment and in practice.
