Med Year 1

Instruction

The Library's involvement in Med 1 focuses on the teaching of Evidence Based Medicine in the MPS1 course. We are integrally involved in designing how the course will be taught, creating teaching materials, and providing in-class instruction.

In recent years, we have worked at finding new ways to bring make the subject relevant and interesting to students. This has focused on the incorporation of standardized patients in class sessions, and the development of online tutorials for use in the MPS1 Canvas page.

Course support

Our Library Guide provides a variety of resources on EBM, including suggested databases, mobile applications, an introduction to searching PubMed, and even the occasional educational video. We are always available to help Med 1 students find information relating to their courses.

 

 

 

Med Year 2

Course Support

The Library works to support all of the Med Year 2 clerkships at WCMC-Q.  Support has taken the form of course support pages, the teaching of skills needed in order to fully participate in a journal club, and instruction regarding conducting searches for scholarly literature.  In recent years, we have also promoted mobile apps which would be of interest to Med Year 2 students.
Workshops, In-Class Sessions, & Individual Consultations
Upon invitation by your professor, in-class instruction on a number of library-related resources & services is provided. 
The Library also provides out-of-class workshops on the resources available to students and faculty, and how to use them. These workshops - which are held on an occasional basis - are advertised on the Library homepage, by posters, and by email.
But don't think you have to wait for an in-class session with a librarian or a library workshop to have all your library related questions answered!  We are also pleased to provide individual consultations on request by contacting the Reading Room at 4492-8100.

Med year 3 & 4

Instruction

The Library's involvement in Med 3 focuses on supporting the various clerkships. Support takes the form of instruction of evidence based medicine, bibliographic management, and utilization of resources.

In recent years, we have worked at finding new ways to integrate information literacy within the clinical experience for WCMC-Q students. In some cases, this has taken the form of utilizing mobile computing to access information resources, while at other times it has been through "real-time" evidence based medicine.

Course support

Our Library Guide provides a variety of resources, including suggested databases, mobile applications, an introduction to searching PubMed, and even the occasional educational video. We are available to assist medical students and faculty through a variety of mediums, such as in-person, via email and chat.
