DynaMed

Powerful and Current Point of Care Resource Available Off-Campus

DynaMed is a valuable and powerful point-of-care reference tool available to the MCW community through the MCW Libraries.  DynaMed contains over 3,200 topic summaries and the resource is updated daily.  Over 500 medical journals are monitored, and new evidence is evaluated by DynaMed editors for its clinical relevance and scientific integrity before being integrated into the summaries.

DynaMed is similar to the well-known resource UpToDate, and independent studies have recently shown that it incorporates new evidence faster than UpToDate[1].  Additionally, DynaMed is available to the MCW community off-campus, while UpToDate can only be used onsite.  There is also a DynaMed mobile application, allowing you to use your device to access the DynaMed summaries at any time [2]!

If you’d like a demo of DynaMed for your class or department, please contact the MCW Libraries at 414.955.8302 or at asklib@mcw.edu.
