Kudos from a senior specialist. And a call for help - Sep 13 - 17, 2021

Dr Ganapathy
Dr Ganapathy

This month we got a really special feedback. This was from Dr Ganapathy who calls himself a semi-retired doctor. Dr Ganapathy was a neurosurgeon till recently, but stopped his surgical practice, and currently focuses on Telemedicine and writing publications. He has done our PubMed and Mendeley courses and this is his feedback: 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As a 71- year old semi-retired Neurosurgeon and Telemedicine specialist, I found your courses very very useful. In fact I wish I could have learnt a lot of this in 1970s. 

Keep up the excellent work. I thank QMed and wish I could use this for decades more. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We wish that younger doctors had the zeal that Dr Ganapathy has! He is full of good wishes for our effort to teach these skills to students of all health sciences streams.

New institutions and newer ideas for our courses

It is a matter of delight that our courses will be reaching out to many. The second institution that joined last year - one of India's many "ICMR institutions" has informed us that they wish to renew access for a second year and make their students of public health courses do them too. 

Then we have two new institutions joining us now  1) JIPMER - a medical college from Puducherry in South India and 2) a research body attached to the "CMC Vellore Association". This is a group of researchers who are working for the Lancet Citizens Commission's research activities. We are honoured to work with them and contribute our knowledge for this project. 

We are also trying to do more and more with our offerings. Recently we had webinar sessions for two medical colleges who are subscribed for our courses. We showed them the new additions to the E-learning site, and gave them a guidance on how to use the site overall.  The feedback we got was that they wanted a couple of of live learning sessions in addition to the recorded lessons that we offer. And so we have worked out modalities to offer live sessions too. 

The challenge of course is always getting a good number for the live sessions. But, nothing venture, nothing have. And we hope to explore various ideas to see that there is lots of learning. 

Do wish us the best! 

 

Appealing for some help
  1. Please share our project - https://goto.gg/14455 -  with Indian doctors you know. Request them to share it further with their friends who are members of AAPI. This could be a lovely opportunity for Indian doctors to give back to their parent country - to their own fraternity! 

  2. If this could be timed for the month of September - during the dates 13th - 17th, then every donation of $10 to $50 gets us a 50% matching fund! 

Do make an effort to spread the word for us! Thank you for any help you can give. 

Do stay safe and let us all look forward to good times!

Smruti - A medical student scores 100% in all our courses

Smruti
Smruti

Smruti - a young medical student recently enrolled for our courses. At QMed we like to encourage students in any healthcare stream to learn all that we have to offer, at the earliest. We believe that when they learn at this phase, they develop a strong foundation for research.

And so, we offer them prizes - for scoring 100%, 80% and above and 60% and above. The condition for each of these is that they get these scores in the first attempt of solving the assessment questions. 

Smruti scored 100% in all courses, but she had to make more than one attempt.  However, where many are content with their scores (nothing wrong in that), Smruti put in efforts to ensure that she scored a 100% and learnt everything correctly! We decided to give her a prize for these efforts she made - all within one month. We just loved her perseverance. 

Smruti  also stole our hearts by sharing the certificates that she got for all four courses on social media, and wrote short notes about each course. This is the first of them: 

I got to know about this website, via my friend. Trust me, it is an amazing resource, especially for beginners, who are stuck between How and Where to begin from! It is highly recommended to work upon your basics before you enter the big world of researching! Thank you!

She has gone on to share details of our courses with at least ten friends so far.

We wish Smruti the very best in her career and hope it will be filled with good research work too!
