QMed’s Workshops

QMed conducted 244 live workshops from April 2008 till January 2020. And soon after the Covid pandemic hit the world, thanks to which live workshops have not been possible.  

In June 2020 we launched our courses online at – www.qmedcourses.in.

This site can be one or more of the following: 

  1. Learning resource through the current four courses
  2. A revision tool – any of the videos serves as a revision tool, if one forgets any of the learning
  3. A reference library – with the pool of resources in the section “Resources for you”
  4. Mini webinar sessions for interactions
  5. Consulting / mentoring sessions with QMed – by booking an appointment. Especially useful for those wanting to create good search strategies for systematic / scoping reviews

 From April 2022, we once again offer our live workshops – for institutions enrolled for our Online courses. When they subscribe, they can request for one workshop at their institution. Additional workshops will cost the institution Rs 10,000/- plus GST. If an institution has not yet enrolled, they can ask for the workshop to be held first and then we will provide access to the online courses for the whole institution at the end of the workshop and on receipt of payment. For costs applicable – please visit this page

Our most popular workshops are Mastering PubMed, and Reference Management with Mendeley. For those who have done the first, we also offer Mastering PubMed: Advanced, and Cochrane Library. We have conducted 260 live workshops so far.
