As a budding researcher looking to shape my research idea and present for my PhD application, the Short Course in Evidence-Based Medicine (SCREM) was one of the advanced courses I took during my MTM that was fulfilling. The online part takes the students through aspects that should be understood before writing a proposal, such as clinical epidemiology, preparing literature, literature search and measures of disease frequency. This course requires that the students submit a research idea which will be worked on during the face-to-face session, where the students are required to defend the work. The teachers give pointers on where to improve proposals and enrich them for submission. And such is what I did during the course: prepare and defend the idea! After the course, I was ready to use this proposal in my application for my sandwich PhD, for which I was successfully selected, starting from the 2022-2023 academic year. The SCREM is the course for you if you want to gain experience in protocol writing, clinical decision making, and developing your research idea.
