A Student's Guide to the Medical Literature

A Student's Guide to the Medical Literature [ ]: As any new medical student knows, exploring the existing medical literature can be a real challenge. Fortunately, this site offered by the University of Colorado’s Health Sciences Center provides a nice guide to navigating these potentially treacherous waters. Created by a fourth year medical student, Katherine McLucas, the guide begins with a short tutorial that outlines a simple four-step approach to reading medical literature. Additionally, the site also includes a section on search strategies, an interactive glossary with hyperlinked terms, and version of the guide that can be used on a PDA. Overall, the site is well-thought out and executed, and is something that medical students will want to revisit when they are in need of some assistance. >From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2007.
