What's Your Question?

How to Research Your Symptoms Online

People use the Internet to research a myriad of things from what they should buy to why they have pain. These guidelines will help you learn how to research your symptoms online if you have concerns.

Use a Medical MD Symptom Checker

As soon as you enter the phrase, “how to research health symptoms,” into any search engine, you’ll receive results for at least one or more reputable medical MD symptom checkers. These symptoms checkers ask your age, gender, primary symptoms, if you’re pregnant, the severity of your symptoms, your current medications and past or current conditions. Once you click submit, a list of conditions that match your symptoms will appear. You’ll have the option to edit your symptoms or start over if you wish.

Check Reputable Websites

If you can’t find what you’re looking for using a free medical symptom checker, there are websites with articles or blog posts that list symptoms. Make sure you’re looking at reputable websites that end with .org or .edu because these sites tend to contain scholarly or medical information that can be trusted. The Internet is full of information that’s published and not verified. Therefore, it’s essential that you’re looking up symptoms on a website that presents information that’s been fact-checked.

Go to a Doctor’s Website

Under some circumstances, you’ll find an online symptom checker on a physician’s website. If you can’t find a MD symptom checker, you’ll find a plethora of resources on these websites. Doctors work diligently toward providing information for their patients in the way of medical library research materials, informational articles, blog posts and podcasts. Therefore, if you can find a symptom checker, you should be able to find information about the symptoms you’re experiencing.

Visit Forums

Sometimes it helps to hear what others are experiencing when you’re undergoing symptoms that don’t match up with the search results you’ve found. Therefore, it’s time to check out user forums. These discussion areas contain experiences from users who go into detail about the symptoms they’re having, what’s happening throughout their experience and if they’re having successful or unsuccessful treatment. Be cautious, though, as these forums will not replace medical advice and may lead to more worry than help.

Check Out Question-and-Answer Websites

Much like a discussion forum, these websites are where users post specific questions to other users regarding issues they’re experiencing. Under many circumstances, these questions pertain to symptoms they’re experiencing and where they can find resources. Other users will help them find pertinent information regarding their specific symptoms when they feel they’ve exhausted every other avenue.

PhD Program Overview

We adapt our curriculum, resources and mentoring styles to the individual needs of a diverse next generation of scientists, who are shaping the world through scientific discovery, policy and health.

Welcome from RAJESH C. MIRANDA, PhD

On behalf of the Texas A&M School of Medicine’s graduate faculty and the Graduate Program Executive Committee, welcome to the Medical Sciences Office of Graduate Studies! We are a collegial team of faculty, students, staff and administration—all committed to fostering an exceptional, inclusive and rewarding research and training environment.

The graduate program in Medical Sciences equips each new generation of aspiring scientists with the skills to identify and solve important health problems. Under faculty guidance, our trainees will engage in rigorous and original scholarship supplemented by coursework tailored to fit individual needs. Trainees have an opportunity to focus their scholarly efforts on many important biomedical problems including infectious diseases, cancer, neuro-degenerative diseases and trauma, substance use and psychiatric disorders, heart and lymphatic disease, to name a few. It is expected that this original scholarship of our trainees will be disseminated in rigorous, peer-reviewed scientific journals and have an impact on the trainee’s scientific discipline. Trainees are also expected to participate in national and international scientific conferences, build professional networks, and seek leadership roles, both within TAMU and in professional scientific societies. An active and vibrant graduate student organization (GSO) engages in a program of professional development activities, research retreats and symposia and also provides a robust mechanism for shared governance and a conduit for feedback to the graduate program and to the faculty.

The School of Medicine at Texas A&M University is part of a vibrant group of 17 schools and colleges and 92 doctoral programs on a contiguous campus. Annual research expenditures at TAMU exceed $1.1 billion, making this central Texas land grant university a research powerhouse. An undergraduate enrollment of ~53,000 students provides ample opportunity for graduate students to work with and train teams of undergraduates, and to develop their own skills as educators and mentors.

Former trainees are scientists at academic institutions as well as pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, educators, entrepreneurs, engaged in advocacy and health policy and scientific writing. Trainees find professional advancement in increasingly diverse arenas that need the analytic and communications skills of trained biomedical scientists.

I hope you find all the resources you are looking for in this website. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We look forward to hearing from you!.

15 PhD Programs in Medical Science 2023

By completing their PhD in a field, graduates assert themselves as the best of the best. The incredible amount of time and study devoted to a PhD program makes it necessary that students be fully invested and dedicated to a lifetime in their arena. What is a PhD in Medical Science? Establishing oneself as a PhD in such a rigorous field as medical science means working through a hefty course load with subjects such as epidemiology, health care practices, research and development, and the future of medical technology. The study may also encompass specific aspects of medicine such as oncology or mental health. As professional academics, students will gain ground in their knowledge of both medical theory and medical practice. They will conduct research, complete studies, and use texts that prepare them for life as a pioneer of medicine. Students who spend an average of eight years working toward their PhD are right to be concerned about program costs. But because the costs vary so widely between schools, it is best to consult with your particular school to find out what the financial bottom line is. After receiving a PhD in the study of medical science, a graduate is often qualified for many careers ranging from research and development of disease treatments to being on the managing board of a hospital or health center. As a PhD, you will likely be able to choose from employment in either the corporate arena, industry, government, or general health facilities. The efforts of a trained medical scientist are high in demand and expected to stay that way. There are myriad choices when it comes to selecting just the right PhD program in medical science. Take your pick from global options that are both online and local. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
