Compared to other providers, ProQuest has shorter embargoes and more full-text content.

Comprehensive medical literature reviews

The collection supports end user need for diverse content with more than 32,000 full-text dissertations unique to ProQuest covering many areas including nursing, psychology, and health management.

ProQuest amasses summary journals, conference proceedings, industry and healthcare reports, trade journals, books, and more into a single cross-searchable collection. These primary, secondary, and tertiary content sources cover the spectrum of medicine and give all users from undergraduates and faculty to clinicians and practitioners easy access to relevant content.

Best practice/epidemiology

Access to evidence-based resources is as important as ever, which is why ProQuest includes thousands of evidence based articles (systematic reviews and meta-analysis) and more than 74,000 clinical trial records as well as expert opinions and findings from cohort and experimental studies.

Practical learning content

Preparation is the key to success in the clinical setting. Students can prepare for their clinical rounds through our collection of MedCom video clips to see important skills and concepts in action. Likewise, instructors can assign clips to students to reinforce textbook learnings or as a follow up to clinical experiences.

Ease of use
