Aphorisms tell of both general life events as well as aspects of certain occupations. In medical education, over the centuries as a product of traditions, aphorisms have been used for teaching both medical ethics and professions. Today, in evidence-based medicine, medical aphorisms are accepted as traditional and are referred to only rarely, despite the fact that a single aphorism can relate a life experience more succinctly and effectively than can several sentences. In light of these data, teachers in the field of medical education must generate new, valid, didactic, and effective aphorisms incorporating their own professional experiences. In this study, we aimed to suggest the use of medical aphorisms, which are easy to remember, facilitate learning, and contribute to the formation of a professional identity and professional sensitivity in medical education. Anahtar Kelimeler : özdeyiş, tıp eğitimi, kanıta dayalı tıp.
