October Medical Student Lunch and Learn

Three Becker librarians will host the October 22nd lunch and learn for medical students.

MD Consult and OvidSP

Kim Lipsey, Carol Murray and Will Olmstadt will present "Using Ovid and MDConsult to Answer Clinical Questions." The librarians will demonstrate optimal search techniques in Ovid, and highlight MDConsult's role in evidence-based medicine.

All WUSM students have free Ovid accounts. A powerful search interface, Ovid is an alternative to PubMed searching, as well as the provider of several hundred of the electronic journals for Becker Library.

MDConsult is also available for the Washington University School of Medicine community, and features over 8 million pages of content, including electronic books, journals, animated demonstrations, and drug information.

The event takes place Wednesday, October 22, from Noon-1 PM in the Moore Auditorium. Pizza will be provided for medical students.
