MD Consult has been transitioned to a new product, Clinical Key, as of July 2014. Elsevier no longer offers MD Consult.
Clinical Key has all the books and journals formerly in MD Consult, and much more, including over 1,000 books, over 20,000 videos, 2.5 million medical images, 600 journals, and a point-of-care resource called First Consult.
Subscription to this enhanced database was made possible by the Geisel School of Medicine, the Department of Medicine, the Department of Surgery, the Department of Anesthesiology, the Patient Safety Training Center, and contributions from the Departments of Urology and Pediatrics.
Some navigation tips:
- When browsing the contents of a particular book or journal, scroll down in the middle frame to see the chapters or articles. Highlight one by clicking in the description (or by hovering and then clicking on the arrow that appears pointing right) and the contents of that chapter or articles will show in the right frame. You can then click on a topic in the right frame to go directly to it.
- Click on the title of a chapter or article to go to it. (Click on the words, not the pdf icon.)
- At the chapter or article level, the contents jump over to the left frame, and additional navigation aids are in the right frame.
- There is a search box at the top center of the page – the default is to search all content in Clinical Key, but you can also change it to search just the book you are looking at.
- To browse books, click on “Books” in the top bar. Similarly, you can browse other types of content by clicking on it in the top bar.
- If you had personal bookmarks for MD Consult you will need to update them.
Tips for printing:
- If you click on a pdf icon, you’ll get a notice that you must log in. That means that you must create a personal login – one you can create one for yourself for free by clicking on “login” at the top right of any screen. Note that if you already have a login for Elsevier’s ScienceDirect journals you will already be registered and can use that same username and password.
- There is another way to print, without logging in. While looking at the content of a chapter, click on the little printer icon at the top of the center frame. A new window with the content, stripped of extraneous material, will open, plus your browser’s print window. Your browser’s print window may offer an option to “print” to pdf, if you would like to save the content in this format.
