The QMed Team

From our CEO

QMed wishes all a very Happy New Year! We are thrilled to announce the launch of a new ELearning course in January - "Advanced PubMed searching to author a Systematic Review". In the last year quite a few people requested for help in this regard. What we had covered in out PubMed course for this was appreciated, but there was more to add. And hence we created this one. More about this in our blog post (below)
We also did a one day workshop in AIIMS Bibinagar as part of the "THIRSTforAIIMS series. As in other AIIMS that we had done earlier it was very well received. And we have had a large number enrolled in our ELearning site too. I also delivered a lecture at the Sion Ayurved Mahavidyalay this month and I was delighted when they said they would like to enroll the institution for our ELearning. We have sent them a proposal and are waiting for the formalities to be completed soon.

Testimonials for QMedCourses

Course: Information Resources & Literature Searching
So many technical terms I got to know in this course which I don't feel is explained in this simplified way when you go through other sources. And I want to thank mam for taking time to explain even the minor details. The support was efficient as I got a reply on the same day and actually took efforts to solve our queries. The fluency of mam and the detailing of the course is the best. Somnath Panda, UG Student, AIIMS Raipur

Course: Introduction to Referencing
The course was in detail knowledge about referencing and it is very important in formulating the manuscript. Samreen Taufiq, Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology and Microbiology

Course: Mastering PubMed
The step by step algorithm was good. I really liked the review flowchart (mindmap) really gives an amazing flow through, loved that so much. Ananyan Sampath, UG Student, AIIMS Bhopal

Course: Reference Management with Mendeley
This course has been incredibly valuable for me as a research scholar by giving a practical guidance for using Mendely. Haripriya Surendran, PhD Research Scholar, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences & Research Centre
