October 22, 2014

Need evidence to support your clinical decisions?

ClinicalKey now is your major source for evidence-based practice information on the go. The medical and surgical database from Elsevier is the new clinical reference resource replacing MDConsult.

It is available 24/7 from classrooms to clinics. An unlimited number of users can sign on simultaneously. Clinicians are the key users for this resource. But, because of its depth and vast offerings, ClinicalKey's debut has implications for every program on the MCV Campus.

Drug Monographs: some  2,900 clinical pharmacology drug monographs from Gold Standard
