  • ​“The SHARP Program was a stepping stone into adopting the philosophy of asking the right clinical question and using the right tools to answer it. It empowered me to pursue the career path of an evidence based clinician and a researcher to provide the bes​t patient centered care”.​

  • “SHARP certificate completed my residency and fellowsh​ip. Because being a medical doctor is not only about patients, it is also being able to understand the evidence b​ased medicine and being able to criticize it. It is also the beginning of my research oriented career”.​​

  • ​“SHARP helped in many aspects, not only knowledge about research, critical thinking, and evidence based medicine, I learned how to manage my time, how to work hard, and how to coordinate with others during group work”.​​​​​
