Searching the literature is a crucial part of training to be a good researcher, whatever the area of research. The American Thoracic Society’s Methods in Epidemiologic, Clinical & Operations Research (MECOR) Program trains Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep physicians to do high quality research in these subject areas as a way to improve health and the delivery of health care in low and middle income countries. QMed provides an important part of the MECOR Program Courses as literature searches are an essential component of research training.

It was a fun session (Mastering PubMed – Basics). I learned new methods with a hands on experience. Would recommend the workshop to everyone in the medical field. It makes PubMed searching fun and easy!

This workshop has taken using the Cochrane Library database to a whole new level or three! Improved my knowledge and ability to search/make sense of the data. Ability to look at systematic reviews and also clinical trials. Excellent all round. Now have to put to practice.

An Excellent workshop on Literature Search and Reference Management. I am in my first year of MD and this workshop has happened to me at the right time, since I would need to know a lot of Literature Searching for my thesis in the coming 2 more year of MD. This will definitely help in reducing the wastage of time in Literature searching and reference management. Mrs. Vasumathi & Mrs. Lakshmi were very clear and concise in their lectures and very patient in teaching us the concepts. The best part was the hands on experience for the same. Thanks to Mrs. Vasumathi and Mrs. Lakshmi for the very interesting and educational experience.
