Tools for Success in Clinical Population Health Research

Searching the literature is a skill that students within the CPHR degree program at UMMS must master. Being able to develop good research questions, translate those questions into concepts, construct effective search strategies, organize results, and remain current in a topic are all keys to success in population health research.

The CPHR program works closely with the Library to insure students have the skills and resources needed. This guide provides a gateway to these and supplements the required workshops provided by librarians each term.
