QMed’s Workshops

QMed conducts workshops on invitation by institutions, associations and conference organizers. 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.

In 2018 we launched our first Online Course, (hosted by Mediknit) – “Mastering PubMed”. Shortly we will be adding two more. We strongly recommend that Institutions checkout the options for our Online Courses before planning a workshop. People enrolled can learn at their own pace and keep revising their learning through the videos. Importantly we offer to come to your institution for two days to do a mentoring or training session – as you prefer.
