PubMed Search Tips

Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) make finding articles on a particular topic easier for the searcher. Regardless of how different authors from around the world choose to refer to a concept in their published works, the PubMed database's search interface will try to map the search terms entered to an appropriate subject heading. In other words, whether you type in "individualized medicine" or "personalized medicine" or "precision medicine", PubMed will map you to the preferred umbrella term (ie. subject heading), Precision Medicine [MeSH].
