Search Terms to Use in PubMed

Increase your precision in searching PubMed for medical education literature by using these search links.  Add your own search terms to the search box on PubMed (using appropriate connectors such as AND and OR) to refine the search. You can also use them by copying and pasting the search terms, including quotation marks, into the PubMed search box.

Note that searching this way increases precision, but eliminates the most recently-published articles from your results, because new articles have not yet been tagged with MeSH terms (medical subject headings).
