Canadian Conference on Medical Education

13-16 April | Niagara Falls, ON

CCME is the premier medical education conference in Canada. It hosts the largest annual gathering of medical educators in the country. We also welcome our international colleagues and other partners including students, other health educators, health education researchers, administrators, licensing and credentialing organizations and governments, to come and share their experiences in medical education across the learning continuum (from undergraduate to postgraduate to continuing professional development).
Did you know that there’s a journal citation database dedicated to Global Health?  It’s called, appropriately enough, “Global Health”.  Content covers communicable diseases; tropical diseases; parasitology; human nutrition; community and public health (including chronic diseases, occupational health, health status indicators, the impact of agriculture on health, and cancer epidemiology); and medicinal and poisonous plants. 

The database is produced by CABI, an international not-for-profit scientific organization, and is available to Queen’s Library users on the familiar Ovid platform.  This year users frequently experienced “
turnaways” for this database so we increased the number of available seats from one to two concurrent users.  Search Global Health now.
