Once a student enrolls in our 13-week course, they will have access to 2 hours of video content and 1 hour of physical engagement with the faculty every weekend. Each week, the course will cover every aspect of research, and it is expected that the students will watch and comprehend the videos thoroughly. They should also prepare any questions they have for the faculty before they meet.

Our Distinguished faculty will also guide and have hold them to write journal articles for publication.

The organization offers a variety of services including teaching, experimental research methodology, biostatistics, and assistance with writing manuscripts and omproving communication. The organization also helps students submit their work to different journals until it gets accepted for publication.

Students are required to attend all teaching sessions and pass the exam at the end of the 12-week course with a minimum score of 80%. Each student has two attempts to pass the exam.

Starting from improving the medical graduate writing, to submitting in journals the consortium does everything. 

We offer two types of publication opportunities. First, students can participate in ongoing research programs at our institute. Based on their contribution and dedication, their name will be included in the paper. Second, students can suggest and select a research topic of their interest, and we will assist them in conducting research on that topic.

However, please note that if the chosen topic is not a part of our ongoing research program, the student needs to sign up for our year-long program. The research process takes at least one year, and the publication will be released as an abstract or in an academic journal.
