As you’re starting your studies at the IHS Campus, you’ll be getting acquainted with a range of new information resources and tools. You’re going to have lots of questions, and lots of new terminology to learn. While Google is an easy place to start when looking up a definition or researching a concept, we’ve licensed another easy-to-use resource for IHS Campus users called DynaMed Plus.
DynaMed Plus is a clinical reference tool that is designed to help you quickly look up answers to your questions about diseases, drugs, diagnostic tests, and other patient care topics. Other useful features of DynaMed Plus include:
- Hundreds of medical calculators, equations, and decision trees
- A DynaMed Plus mobile app you can download and install on your phone.
Medical students may find DynaMed Plus particularly handy for researching answers to questions identified during Monday morning PPPC sessions.
You can find DynaMed Plus under “Popular Resources” > “Databases” in the upper left of the IHS Library homepage.
While DynaMed Plus probably can’t answer EVERY question you might have, it comes pretty close, and we’re confident you’ll find it useful. Next time you’re tempted to reach for Google, try DynaMed Plus.
