Encouraging Undergraduate students of any health sciences stream to learn literature searching & referencing


If you are a UG student of any health sciences stream, this is for you:

We currently have three online courses:

  • Information Resources & Literature Searching (Free)
  • Mastering PubMed
  • Reference Management with Mendeley

The first course is free. For the other two courses we usually request people to give a donation to support the maintenance of our courses. (The minimum suggested donation is Rs 2000/- and one will get access to any new courses that we add too)

In order to encourage a large number of UG students to learn from QMed, we are raising funds via a crowd funding platform Milaap where we ask donors to give a donation for students to get access and learn from us.

We also ask you to give a donation of just Rs 250/- directly to us – this is your commitment to learning from us. To encourage you, we are offering prizes if you score well.

  2. If you finish all three courses within a month of your getting access, and get 100% in the first course and at least 80% in the other two, you get a prize of Rs 500/-. Note - you should get these scores in the first attempt

Explanation about attempts - You do get a chance to do more than one attempt in the final assessment of each course. But the prizes are offered only if you get the said scores in the first attempt. This is not very tough, because just like an "open book exam" we encourage you to check out a video lesson before you answer a question.

Raising funds for this project:

We are raising funds towards supporting UG students, via a crowdfunding site - Milaap

We request seniors in the profession and members of the public to donate towards this cause
