        Searching Categories

        Tip: It is better to start with a broad search and then narrow results, rather then the other way around.

        • Some common categories are:

        Population Groups: Male or Female

                                             Animal or Human

                                             Inpatient or Outpatient

                     

        Age Groups:              Childhood with subcategories
