Are you envious of the topper in your class, whom you call the “Medical Google”, or your colleague who can write a paper in just 2 hours?
Well, then today is your lucky day because, from tomorrow, you will be one of them!
There are several steps of academic success. You need some special skills like memory, analytical skill, communication skill etc.
But, in today’s world, all skills start from a single one skill. If you can master it, next steps will be much easier. It is the information searching skill.
Let’s face it, big libraries are becoming obsolete fast, and today by “Information searching skill”, we mean the “Internet searching skill”.
To cut it short, Once upon a time, Internet searching skill was a winning attribute in medical school toppers or doctors with successful career!
AND THEN CAME, RETINA MEDICAL SEARCH!
To make it simple, lets consider a situation. Suppose you and your colleague/friend are given a particular task in an academic/clinical context. (Preparing a project or decision-making in a clinical situation).
In this situation, if your friend’s internet searching skill is better than you, then he/she could be at a clear advantage. However, it wont be any more! Because hereby we provide you the absolute search weapon for your situation so that you will always start one-step ahead (unless of course if your friend also has the same weapon!)
Now what is so special about us? First of all retina medical search is absolutely free (not even require any “free registration” ). Secondly, unlike any other medical search engine, We cover the entire web and all potentially physician level documents and categorize them in the way exactly you need ( not in the way, documents are usually classified ). There are different search platforms, searching tabs and sorting options inside each platform. Apart from our specialized search operators, we also support Google’s advanced search operator to make your job easier.
It may take some time to understand the functionality of all the search options in Retina, but when you do, you will always start one-step ahead of your friends or colleagues…each time, every time.. be it collecting references for your paper , downloading a reference book, getting the latest guideline in a clinical situation or simply knowing the upcoming conferences in your city…
YOU WILL ALWAYS FIND THE INFORMATION FASTER AND BETTER THAN ANYBODY WILL!
AND EVEN IF YOUR COMPETITOR HAS ACCESS TO SOME SUBSCRIPTION BASED SERVICE THAT YOU DON’T HAVE ACCESS TO!
Explore, our different search functionalities and you will be surprised to see that we have a solution for almost any situation you may face in your career! We have combined our decades of experience in medical informatics with innovative technology, which gives you the ultimate control, and power in medical information search.
To give you an idea of our coverage, Retina covers almost 3 billion physician level web-pages and documents ( that is why we can not publish a “list” of resources that we cover), categorized in around 40 filtering/sorting option to serve you, you and only you. And mostly the resources, that we can not cover due to any reason ( like Google books ), we provide easy to use operators so that you can directly search there from retina only and can save your time.
Here are some random tasks that you will be able to do better than your friends from tomorrow onwards..

Download the reference book that is not available in your library. ( Retina-books)
Find the best research evidence for a particular topic. ( Retina-professional level > best evidence tab )
