In December 2020, Sri Manakula Vinayagar Medical College and Hospital (SMVMCH) in Puducherry (South India) subscribed for the access to our courses.
This is the second medical college to take access after AIIMS Bhubaneswar in July 2020. (Three other colleges had taken access from our earlier platform).
What is important about this institution? For a few years, they had invited QMed to conduct its workshops not only for their faculty and residents, but also for medical students from various institutions attending a conference for Undergrad students that they organized annually. They helped us spread our training among many students who attended this event.
Then, this institution also made it mandatory for postgraduate residents working on their dissertations, to submit their search strategies. I believe I would be correct if I said that no other institution in India would ask for this.
Then, their Dean of Research - Dr Amol D had attended an extensive workshop organized jointly by The Union and QMed, on literature searching and referencing. So he himself has learnt these skills from us in great detail
All these factors together, made it easy for them to subscribe to our courses. Dr Amol mentioned that they will ensure that every postgraduate resident shows them a certificate of completion of this course.
We are making all efforts to encourage more medical colleges to follow these steps
Do wish us luck!
And from all of us at QMed - your donations are an important component of whatever we have completed. We will work hard to make you feel proud of your having supported us!
