Learn Literature Searching & Reference Management through our Online Courses


About our courses:

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, by partnering with Mediknit – a company that hosts a lot of online medical courses. In 2019 we added two more courses. In mid-2020, we moved the courses to our own platform

Before I started the course I had used resources like PubMed many times but never had the opportunity to learn the basics of PubMed   search as systematically put together in this course.
