QMed has taught literature searching and reference management since 2008 April. We have delivered lectures and conducted workshops. Over a span of time, we have had requests to put up our courses online, so that we could reach out to a large number. Spreading our knowledge is our mission and we got our first course online in May 2018, and in September 2019 we added two more courses. During the lockdown we restructured the courses (especially to include the “new PubMed) and got them up and ready in June 2020.

Thank you for choosing to donate – you become a part of our mission to spread our skills and help advance medical research and practice!
The Medical Council of India’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”
These skills are rarely taught systematically in the curriculum and we wish to help spread these skills. So we wish to reach all institutions in India and request each one to provide access to all their students, residents, faculty, and healthcare professionals. We believe that with large numbers of institutions taking access, we can keep the costs low. This is a win-win for all. Here are our annual rates for institutional access:
GST will be added as applicable at the time of invoicing (Currently it is 18%)
Do send us an email - email@example.com to learn more about registering for access.
