QMed Knowledge Foundation: A Unique Change Making NGO in India

Health professionals want to find out the evidence of what works best, and offer patients treatment based on such evidence. They wish to stay updated with the latest research findings. How do they do this?

In India training to find updates and evidence is not part of the health sciences curriculum. As a result health science students and professionals waste hours searching for literature and evidence. Time that could be better spent in actual research, learning and practice!

QMed Knowledge Foundation is making a change. Since 2008, QMed has shared its skills in literature searching and referencing, conducting hundreds of workshops and lectures all over India.

The most common feedback was - “This should be a part of the curriculum; all of us need to learn this”. And in 2018, we launched our first Online Course. In 2019, we have added two more courses. Still more will follow in the future.

We believe in engaging with our target audience to take things ahead, so that the Indian population has access to evidence based healthcare. Together let us build a generation that engages in providing this access.

    We are delighted to announce that the Manipal Academy of Higher Education has signed up with us to make our Online Courses available to their faculty and students in three of their institutions – Kasturba Medical College Manipal, Kasturba Medical College Mangalore and Sikkim Manipal University, Gangtok. One thousand faculty plus students across these campuses will be able to enrol for our courses. MAHE is the first group of Academic Institutions to subscribe to our courses.
