Manipal Academy of Higher Education to make QMed’s Online Courses available to their students & faculty

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. Our courses are hosted with Mediknit, a Bangalore based entity that has helped several medical associations to create ELearning courses.
We trust that this will encourage many more institutions to follow suit, to help their health professionals and students learn literature searching and reference management skills.
