Clinical Mobile Apps

In a world where the Medical Library now lives in your hand with many Duke-provided mobile apps, let's make sure you know that:

  • The Lexicomp app requires a subscription code (provided via Duke's institutional license). This code changes yearly. Make sure you go to Lexicomp, click on the Mobile App Access button, and follow their instructions to update your subscription code.
  • If you are a new to Duke, you may need to let your existing UpToDate subscription lapse prior to setting up your account through the Duke.
  • You can get CME/CE earned from UpToDate and DynaMed. These will fulfill MOC CME requirements of some ABMS Member Boards including the ABIM.
  • The Library offers the Johns Hopkins ABX Guide. This resource features frequently updated, evidence-based information on the treatment of infectious diseases and the use of antibiotics, antivirals, antifungals and more to help you make decisions at the point of care.
  • Duke pays for subscriptions to other apps including, Lippincott Procedures for nursing, respiratory therapy, and physical therapy.
  • Looking for guidelines? Try the free Guideline Central app!
  • You can use Read by QxMD to easily keep up with your favorite journals. This offers you one tap access to full text articles via our institutional version.
  • iMedicalApps, created by a team of physicians, allied health professionals and trainees, is a great resource for in-depth information on mobile medical technology and mHealth. They also developed, a platform that enables providers to prescribe health apps to their patients.
  • Librarians help students and clinicians find, download, and use high-quality medical related apps via classes or individual consultations and can help you too.

These and other tools are available on our Mobile Apps guide. We invite you to try them out! Email us at with questions or comments.
