Next level Searching

The Knowledge Centre for Health Ghent offers training to improve your searching experiences in biomedical and multidisciplinary databases.

These in-depth courses will help participants to develop their knowledge and practical skills in searching and retrieving scientific evidence. Having these skills becomes increasingly important to, for example, handle the increasing amount of literature in your research area, to find applicable evidence to write research project proposals and to support your grant application, among others.

If you successfully follow three modules, it will be added to your Doctoral Schools curriculum as transferable skills course.

The format of these modules is blended learning including instruction videos, an exercise, a quiz and a Q&A session.


Registration is possible via the link on the page of a specific session.


The sessions are organised in English.
