PubMed Ten-Tips

Clinical Queries

The link to Clinical Queries is in the PubMed Tools column in the center bottom of the PubMed opening page.

Clinical Queries is a PubMed interface that applies pre-set search filters to focus your search in three areas.

  1. Clinical Study Categories: Select a Category (Etiology, Diagnosis, Therapy, Prognosis, or Clinical prediction guide) and a Scope (Broad or Narrow) to filter your search results. These options are available after you enter your search.
  2. Systematic Reviews: Filters the search to include systematic reviews, meta-analyses, reviews of clinical trials, evidence-based medicine, consensus development conferences, and guidelines on your topic.
  3. Medical Genetics: Filters a disease search for articles about genetic diagnosis, clinical description, management, counseling, molecular genetics, and genetic testing.
