ClinicalKey Guide

Quick tips for using ClinicalKey


The Health Sciences Libraries provides access to ClinicalKey. Upgraded and expanded from MD Consult, this Point of Care research and "clinical insight engine" contains:

  • hundreds of Elsevier's medical books, textbooks and very current journals
  • Procedures Consult's procedural videos
  • the First Consult POC interface
  • additional videos and images, practice guidelines, patient handouts, and drug information from Clinical Pharmacology.

This resource is specifically designed to support physicians in evidence-based clinical care and clinical education, and also supports researchers and instructors with an included presentation builder for use with images and videos.
