Introduction: Nowadays, the evidence-based training is taken into consideration with the aim of serious, clear and logical use of the most common evidence for decision making in medical education. Evidence-based training is an effective method in students' education and understanding the teachers and students views in the context of this new approach will encourage the development of applications. The aim of this study was to describe the experiences and perceptions of Medical Educators and Students about Evidence-based training. Materials & methods: This qualitative study was conducted in Tabriz University of Medical Sciences in 2012. Five students and 13 educators were selected by purposive sampling and their experiences and viewpoints were identified until achieving data saturation. Data was collected through semi-structured interviews. Qualitative content analysis was used to analyze data.
 Findings: Three main themes categorized in this research including “educational interventions”, “educator's experiences” and “learning conditions”. “Evidence of teaching and learning”, “research in education”, “attitude and personal beliefs”, “professional knowledge and experience”, “conditions of students” and “educational environment conditions” were considered as subthemes in evidence-based training.
 Discussion & Conclusion: According to the participants’ experiences and perception, evidence-based training is based on educational interventions, educator's experiences and learning conditions. In order to improve medical students’ learning, medical education based on personal beliefs should change to training based on the best evidence.
