Posted On: Friday, August 26, 2022 - 14:17 by Brandi Tuttle

With nearly 2 million apps in the Apple App store alone, it can be tricky to figure out which apps are worth your time and/or money. Before you go hunting in the App or Play Store, don’t forget about the health-related apps you can get through Duke. You can visit our Mobile Apps guide to get started or read on for some highlights!

Our most popular point-of-care apps include UpToDate and DynaMed, which feature an impressive variety of medical calculators and clinical evidence. Did you know that you can get CME/CE from both UpToDate and DynaMed? These will fulfill MOC CME requirements of some ABMS Member Boards including the ABIM.

Easy Access to Resources from Off Campus
Posted On: Monday, August 15, 2022 - 00:42 by Beverly Murphy

Duke students, faculty and staff and most affiliates with a Duke NetID have off-campus access to many online resources, such as databases and e-journals. Simply start at our Website and you will be prompted to sign in with your Duke NetID and password once you get to a resource that requires authentication. Or you may use the Duke NetID Login button at the top right of the site to avoid the need for repeated reource prompts. This login will last until you close your browser.

With the exception of the Duke FormWeb and Micromedex, which require the VPN, no VPN or Virtual PIN is needed to access our resources. A small subset of Duke's online resources are restricted by license agreements and cannot be accessed from off-campus...
