Institutional access to our courses:

The National Medical Commission’s document – “Competency based undergraduate curriculum for the Indian Medical Graduate” specifies in 3.4.4:
“Demonstrate ability to search (including through electronic means), and critically evaluate the medical literature and apply the information in the care of the patient”

Competency based Undergraduate (UG) curriculum for the Indian Medical Graduate (Foundation course for MBBS) specifies on page 64:
“The students should be introduced to the basic use of word and power point, familiar with search engines, in performing a literature search and accessing online resources

These skills of searching (and referencing) are rarely taught in the curriculum with a systematic approach that IS needed. QMed wishes to help impart and spread these skills. It is our mission to ensure that our skills reach out to all institutions in India.

We invite institutions to partner with us and for each institution to provide access to:

  1. UG students – please make it mandatory for them
  2. PG students, Fellows, Residents, Faculty and all other healthcare professionals – please encourage maximum numbers to do the courses
How we have made things easy to go ahead

Removing real / perceived constraints:

  1. Registered participants have a whole year to learn and the duration of all courses is just about eight hours of video viewing plus a little additional time for assessments
  2. An average video is only five minutes long, so one can do the courses bit by bit
  3. The courses can easily be done on a mobile too

Costs – easy to approve:
