The average duration of Morning Report in EBM group was 42.10 minutes and in Routine group was 38.6 minutes.  There was significant difference between EBM and regular in presenting feedback (P< 0/04), participation and interaction between the audiences (P< 0/003) so that in EBM group was observed more than routine group. There was no significant difference between EBM and Routine group in the number of patients, the type of disease and time Case Presentation (p>0.05). In EBM group students ability was promoted more than routine group (p<0.04).
