Helping 100 Postgraduate Medical Students Do Better Research For Their Thesis

In October 2016, during Daan Utsav, QMed raised funds to assist 100 PG students* with the
“Literature Searching and Reference Management” component of their theses. 

How will QMed assist 100 PGs?

  • We will conduct a full day hands on workshop on
    a) Mastering PubMed and
    b) Reference Management with Mendeley
    These – for only 10 students at a time

    (For details of each workshop’s coverage please visit this page) 

  • We will later mentor each student for the searching, citations and bibliography for the individual thesis topic.

*Note: This is applicable to Mumbai based PGs only, for logistical reasons.

Why should you as a postgraduate student join this initiative, when you have the Research Methodology Workshop? 

  • We cover LOTS more than we do in the RMW lecture. (The lecture on searching is of 1-hour duration. The workshop is one full day with hands on practice. And reference management is not taught in the RMW)
  • You will get more personalized attention than in our regular workshops
  • After the workshop you will get support for your individual thesis topic
  • And as a result, you will save loads of time

In addition:

  • The cost of assisting one PG student works out to Rs. 2500/- and QMed has subsidized this for you, through a fund-raising program that we did in October 2016.
  • You will be required to give a small contribution of Rs. 500/- to the Foundation, and not Rs. 2500/- which would be the real cost

Eligibility: You are eligible if you:

  • Are a PG student doing MD / MS / MDS / MSc or related health sciences PG courses like Nursing, Physiotherapy, OT etc

  • Have not yet submitted your thesis, and have enough time to work on it

What do you – as a PG student have to commit to?

  • Attending a one day workshop on literature searching and reference management

  • Attending the entire workshop – which means coming on time and staying till the end. Please do not choose an “on call day” to attend the workshop

  • Work on the literature search & citations & references for the thesis topic, by taking guidance from us in person, or through Skype / Google Hangout.

 (In other words we will guide you by helping you with your doubts and offering suggestions, but you will carry  out the work)

Workshop Venue

  • Seth GS Medical College / KEM Hospital – Library (Telemedicine Hall)
    We thank Dr Supe and the authorities of Seth GS Medical College for assistance with the venue. We thank the library team for all their assistance. 
  • We can hold the program in your institution, if we have groups of ten PGs, and the college can provide us with a room / hall, projector and Internet facility (Or if the group is ready to use Dongles or Wifi hotspots from mobile phones)

How can a PG student register for this program?

  • If you are a PG student in a Mumbai based institution and wish to get trained in these skills and also receive personalized help for the searching and referencing for your thesis, please fill in this registration form.
  • Please make your contribution of Rs. 500 before you fill the form, as you will need to fill in the necessary details.
