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.
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.
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
Interprofessional learning or interprofessional relations
