Testimonials for QMedCourses

Course: Information Resources & Literature Searching
This is useful for me as a postgraduate who is about to start working on my thesis. The videos, the explanations and the tutorials are excellent. The tests helped me to understand better. Prathipaty Josephine Bindu, PG Student, GITAM Institute of Medical Sciences and Research

Course : Introduction to Referencing
As a writer, I did not know quite a few things about referencing and its syntaxes, but now I do. The course was very precise and well-put. The video sessions were brief and on point, so overall it helped me a lot. It is a great introductory course. Jainish Patel, Electronics Engineer

Course : Mastering PubMed
Helps in searching articles efficiently. The Course on Using MeSH Terms was most useful. Everything is just PERFECT. Kaustubh Augustine, UG Student, TNMC and BYL Nair Charitable Hospital

Course : Reference Management with Mendeley
This course is very useful in our future reference project & publication of our article . The best part of this course is we get a chance to learn from basics, which is very useful in our PG courses . The pattern of lectures are nicely arranged. Overall course is arranged perfectly with small lectures, quiz for recap and last final assessment to get a certificate. Jahnvi M Chopda, UG Student, Government Medical College Bhavnagar (Supported by Foundation For Excellence)
