Testimonials for QMedCourses

Course: Information Resources & Literature Searching
Very relevant to help us start our journey as researchers at the UG level. Proper teaching style with self-paced lectures. Self-paced nature, regular recaps at the end of each lesson, examples in the lessons to understand the topic and the option to fasten the video lectures. This course is excellent. Preeyati Chopra, UG Student, Government Medical College, Patiala
Course : Introduction to Referencing
Lectures by Vasumathi ma'am are informative and proceed in a desired pace. Its very easy to follow & implement in future research work. I liked the point that videos of lectures are accessible in the mobile as well. I could easily follow up queries by revisiting videos which I didn't understand. Practical approach by demonstrating in the computer and sharing screen in real time helped a lot. Summary at the end also helped a lot to recap. Dr Bheemas B Atlapure, Dep Anaesthesiology, AIIMS Guwahati

Learned many useful advanced tips specially in saving the strategy, results section and filters sections. Gained new knowledge on AND / OR .
