Training Opportunity: PubMed for Trainers

Posted by on February 11th, 2014 Posted in: News From NNLM PNR, Training & Education

What do searching for drugs and chemicals in PubMed®, finding information about diseases using indexing rules, and creating a one hour PubMed class using the “rapid design” technique have in common?  These are all topics covered but the class “PubMed for Trainers,” where you will have an opportunity to gain new skills, brush up on existing PubMed Skills, and collaborate with colleagues to help create effective training strategies.

Join the National Library of Medicine Training Center (NTC) for the free hybrid class called PubMed for Trainers (PMT). The class is held in 4 sessions; 3 online and 1 in person session (attendance in all is expected).

The class runs from March 6 – 27, 2014.  The last of the four sessions will be in-person at the University of Washington in Seattle on Thursday, March 27th. Upon completion, the class is eligible for 15 MLA CE contact hours. The class is offered at no cost.

This hands-on course consists of 8 presentations created by the National Library of Medicine, live demonstrations,hands-on exercises, group work and discussions, and networking opportunities over the course of four sessions.  You can expect an additional 2-3 hours of independent homework.

The dates and times for the four class sessions are:

  1. March 6, 2014, 10am-12pm Pacific Time (online via Adobe Connect)
  2. March 13, 2014, 10am-12pm Pacific Time (online via Adobe Connect)

Thoughts on "Training Opportunity: PubMed for Trainers"

Sandra Hight says:

Just curious, for those of us out of the Seattle area ~ would it be possible to attend the on-line classes and face to face final day in Boise. The instructor could travel to our fair city after the March 27th class in Seattle!

I am willing to steer the final face to face class here in Boise, we have computer training labs available here at Saint Alphonsus.

Your welcome to e-mail or call me at (208) 367-2271.

Gail Kouame says:

Hi Sandy – Thanks so much for your generous offer to host! As you know after emailing with Sharon, the NTC trainers aren’t budgeted for extra travel this time around. But we will keep Boise in mind as a future host site for training. Thanks again!
