Your SSC will require that you find scientific literature in order to read around a topic, even if you’re are not doing a systematic review as the eventual outcome. It is a great opportunity to gain Key Skills which will be valuable for the SSC, your Year 5 Paediatric CAT, and the rest of your professional life.
We’re aware that you might have attended a session in your Part II on bibliographic/database searching training for dissertations, so there are two ways you can attend this mandatory literature search skills session:
If you attended teaching at the start of Part II called ‘Part II Database Searching and Bibliographic Training: Pathology and Pharmacology’ delivered by one of the Medical Library team (Veronica or Eleanor), come to the Medicine: SSC 2 session. Book here.
If you did NOT attend (or have the option of) Part II teaching from the Medical Library team, come to the Medicine: SSC 1 session. Book here.
If you are producing a systematic review as the primary outcome of your SSC you should attend one of the above sessions, followed by the Medicine: SSC Systematic Reviews session. Book your place on the first sessions with the links above. Book on the systematic reviews session here.
It is compulsory to attend at least one of the first two sessions, and it is a prerequisite of attending the systematic reviews training that you have attended one of the other two sessions first. If you have any questions about this training, please contact email@example.com.
