Medicine: SSC 1 (For Year 4 clinical students only)

Wed 8 Apr 2020


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 your SSC, your Year 5 Paeds CAT, and the rest of your professional life.

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

Target audience

University of Cambridge clinical students in Year 4 undertaking SSCs.


This session assumes you have never previously been taught how to search databases.


Number of sessions: 1
