Course Description (1.0 CME Credit)

Are you downloading journal article PDFs and cluttering your computer desktop with no way to organize them? Are you piling large amounts of physical articles in your office with nowhere to put them? Worse of all, are you not even trying to keep up with new journal articles because you are just over it?

Whether you are a new medical student or a seasoned researcher, being able to manage journal articles is an essential part of medicine.

The problem is that most people are still manually saving journal PDFs on their computers with no way of organizing, citing, or sharing them. This is where having a citation manager comes in to save the day. You may have already heard about citation managers but never start using them because you felt intimidated or believed it’s not worth the time. 

I’ve gone through these same struggles while doing research over the past 10 years (see my publications here). Through this online course, I want to show the best way I have found to manage, organize, and share all your journal articles using a citation manager. It’s really easy to start and I guarantee you will never want to go back to your old ways!

After successful completion of the course and final quiz you will receive a CME Certificate for 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM.
