Know Moore About: Productivity new [Places] 13:00 - 14:00 Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Betty and Gordon Moore Library, Pink Study Room

This session will discuss a number of ways to increase your productivity during your studies.

Finally we will look at some of the ways you can create your perfect working atmosphere - from comfy seats to background noise apps.

Please do not go to the Moore Library at your scheduled session time as this will no longer be running.

A recorded version of this training session will be uploaded on the date of the session. If you are interested in receiving an email notifying you of this, please sign up for the session. We will then circulate the links to the resources, as well as linking them here.

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 Paeds CAT, and the rest of your professional life.

This session will be a refresher in how to search medical/healthcare databases effectively and efficiently, save and record literature search terms, and keep track of the results that you find.

This optional online drop-in session is a chance for students undertaking their SSC project to ask questions about, and gain further support in literature searching, critical appraisal and evaluation of medical research, and referencing. Those who have booked a place will be sent a link to join the online session several days before their scheduled session takes place.

Please only book a place if you are currently undertaking your SSC block. Students in later blocks will have the chance to participate then.

This session is aimed at students who have had no prior literature searching training before. Those who have some experience in literature searching should book instead on the SSC 2 drop in session.
