Online Courses

ICMR-NIE has had a long history of training human resources for health. To extend this service to the online platform and reach a wider audience of learners, the institution set-up the Online Courses Division in 2016. In association with the National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) at IIT-Madras, the ICMR-NIE offers a number of online courses under the banner - NIeCer (NIE-ICMR e-Certificate) courses.

Introduction to Systematic Reviews 
for Dental Health Professionals

This course is part of the series of courses on health research offered by ICMR-NIE. Systematic reviews, as a method of conducting research synthesis, are becoming common. They provide much needed evidence in areas which lack a concrete consensus and are considered cornerstones of forming practice and policy guidelines. This course was born out of the need felt among dental health professionals across the country to understand the basic principles of conducting a systematic review. Over the course of our lectures, the participants will be able to grasp the most essential steps and understand the various activities involved while carrying out a systematic review. We expect the course to be useful to dental health professionals who have minimal to no exposure to systematic reviews.
