  1. Most databases have an option to save a literature search and have new results delivered to you via email at the frequency of your choice.  Ask your librarian for advice on setting up auto-alerts or other methods to keep current on a topic of interest.
  2. Each database employs a different algorithm to search. Some databases use a controlled vocabulary (e.g., MeSH - medical subject headings for MEDLINE) while others utilize textwords or keyword (e.g., Web of Science).  Below are some general terms to consider when beginning your literature searches. 
  • Medical Education
  • Undergraduate medical education
  • Graduate medical education
  • Continuing medical education
  • Internship and residency


  • Problem-based learning or problem-based learning or PBL
  • Team-based learning or team-based learning or TBL
