UpToDate Online

From the Suggestion Box:

I am one of the medical students who is usually located in Mackay. The Uptodate database is a wonderful resource and is very commonly used throughout Queensland Health. It is also used frequently internationally as well. JCU has medical students who are located permentenly in many places which cannot access the Uptodate database as they are technically not on the townsville or cairns campus. It would be increadbly helpful to access this service off campus as this is a very common databases that consulants will say say go look up "..." on Uptodate.

Library Response

This question has been referred to our liaison team for the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Molecular Sciences, who will respond directly to the person who has submitted the suggestion.

UpToDate Online is a Current Awareness services that provides the most up to date information on various medical and health topics. It is currently available on campus only, as it is a site specific license.
