Background: Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is a holistic approach of integrating research findings with the existing knowledge in modern medicine. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the reaction level (Kirkpatrick level 1) of the faculty participants who attended a workshop on EBM so that necessary steps can be taken to improve the organization of similar workshops in future. Materials and Methods: It was a cross-sectional descriptive study, conducted among faculty from different specialties who had attended a 1-day workshop on EBM. A feedback form was used to assess the response of the participants regarding the different aspects of the workshop. Statistical analysis was done using SPSS version 23. Frequency distributions were calculated for all the variables. Results: The 1-day workshop on EBM was attended by 24 faculty members and it consisted of 5 sessions. All the 24 (100%) participants liked the overall organization of the workshop, with 6 faculty (25%) appreciating the interactive and informative nature of sessions and group activities. Further, 5 (20.8%) faculty members found the workshop to be useful as they were of the opinion that the knowledge gained in the session would aid in the delivery of better patient care, and for better teaching of undergraduate and postgraduate students. Conclusion: Kirkpatrick level 1 evaluation was done for the EBM workshop, and it was found that all the participants liked the overall organization and content of the workshop, but also expressed their opinion for more exposure on critical appraisal of research articles and searching Cochrane's database. The following core competencies are addressed in this article: Medical knowledge, Patient care, Practice-based learning and Improvement.
