Dyspepsia is a common symptom encountered in the community setting with a large differential diagnosis and a heterogeneous pathophysiology. Due to its prevalence, dyspepsia is responsible for substantial health care costs in Canada and significantly affects quality of life. We present here a practical, evidence-based approach to dyspepsia with the goal of providing medical students with efficient guidelines to develop effective investigation and treatment plans in a clinical setting.
