Using PubMed

PubMed is a biomedical database created and maintained by the National Library of Medicine.  It has over 23 million citations from biomedical literature.  PubMed is an excellent place to search for public health articles.

The PubMed tutorial will help you learn how to use PubMed effectively.  You can work through part or all of the tutorial or view any of the short videos on specific aspects of using PubMed.

Use PubMed's topic-specific queries for searches related to health care quality, Healthy People 2020 objectives, and topics like cancer, AIDS and health disparities.
