Overview

The Health & Medical Collection is a comprehensive medical information resource for researchers, students, faculty, and healthcare professionals. Inside users will find biomedical content from MEDLINE®, built on a core of premier scholarly journals in full text such as The New England Journal of Medicine, The Lancet, and The BMJ (expected April 2016).

In addition, this collection aggregates content in all forms of media to support the learning, teaching, and research needs of institutions. This includes medical reference ebooks, instructional videos, dissertations, and working papers. As the study of medicine is an evidence-based discipline, the Health & Medical Collection includes thousands of evidence-based articles and clinical trial records.

While other providers tend to focus solely on the information needs of established professionals, this collection’s unique mix of training content, scholarly literature, and clinical reference materials makes it accessible for undergraduates, medical students, and all others preparing for a career in healthcare.
