The Biomedical Libraries has a new resource that allows you to access full text clinical books, watch procedural videos and animations, and take self-assessment exams.

Access Medicine

Access Medicine features:Learn

  • Full text of 85+ clinical textbooks including Harrison’s Online, CMDT, Schwartz’s Principles of Surgery, Tintinalli’s Emergency Medicine, Pharmacotherapy: A Pathophysiologic Approach, and more!
  • More than 250 examination and procedural videos, patient safety modules, audio files, and animations.
  • Extensive self-assessment with thousands of Q&As to prepare for exams.
  • Drug database to look up dosing, indications, and adverse reactions with thousands of generic and name-brand drugs.
  • Differential diagnosis tool that allows you to browse 1,000+ diagnoses by symptom, disease or organ system.
  • Concise evidence-based outlines of common medical conditions for the clinical setting.

Benefits of a MyAccess account:

  • No VPNs or extra logins required! Simply create a MyAccess account while authenticated on the Dartmouth or DHMC secure network. Your registration expires if you do not log in every 90 days from either your device or computer on the Dartmouth or DHMC secure network.
  • Access to the site on your mobile devices and from off-campus computers.
  • Access to the Q&A feature and prior quiz result scores.
  • Save and download image capability, including the ability to download images directly to PowerPoint.

To create a MyAccess account:

Junos Pulse VPN

UPDATE:  On March 19, 2014 the Dartmouth VPN was upgraded to a new version.  This was a minor change to both the VPN concentrators and to the JunOS Pulse client.  After the upgrade, users will be prompted to install a new version of JunOS Pulse when they next connect to the VPN.

Please Note:  There are known  issues with the Macintosh version of this new VPN software.  Please click here for more information. If you are having issues installing Junos Pulse, please call the Dartmouth Computing Help Desk at 646-2999 for assistance.

Bates Visual Guide

Bates’ Visual Guide to Physical Examination provides demonstrations of head-to-toe and systems-based physical examination techniques.  It contains more than 8 hours of content, broken down into volumes based on regional anatomy, and then short chapters that review anatomy and demonstrate proper examination.  Links can be made to the entire resource, single volumes, or single chapters.  Also included are five videos designed to help students prepare for Objective Structured Clinical Examinations, or OSCEs, by testing their clinical reasoning skills.  Available on any computer or device connected to Dartmouth/DHMC’s network until April 24, 2014, at http://www.batesvisualguide.com

Acland's Video Atlas

Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy presents dissections of unembalmed human bodies in five volumes. The specimens rotate relative to the camera, giving a three-dimensional view.  For each part of the body, the bones are shown first, then joints  and their movements, then the muscles, and then the blood vessels and nerves. Individuals can register for a personal account and then take self-examinations.  Available on any computer or device connected to Dartmouth/DHMC’s network until April 24, 2014, at http://www.aclandanatomy.com

If you have comments about these resources please send them to Peggy Sleeth, Associate Director/Information Resources.

NCBINCBI is offering two webinars to the New England region in March. They are: Overview of NCBI Molecular Databases on Wed, Mar 19, 2014 3:15 PM – 5:15 PM  and NCBI BLAST Services on Thu, Mar 20, 2014 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM.  These are scheduled for 2 hours but should be done in an hour and a half. Please follow the links below to register for the classes.

Overview of NCBI Molecular Databases, March 19, 2014  3:15 PM
This webinar provides an introduction to the molecular databases at the NCBI and covers accessing data through the Entrez system and BLAST. It provides an overview of databases, describes types of molecular data, and demonstrates sequence, variation, genome information and BLAST searching using a single gene as an example to navigate across the integrated databases, search tools, and other resources. Registration: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8112845858136628481
(Note:  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.)

NCBI BLAST Services, March 20, 2014 9:00 AM
This session highlights new features and demonstrates the practical aspects of using NCBI BLAST, the most popular sequence similarity service in the world. The workshop demonstrates useful but under-used features of the updated service including direct access from the Entrez sequence databases; the integration and expansion of Align-2-Sequences; organism limits, other filters and re-organized databases on the submission forms; formatting options (CDS, sorting by position, taxonomy reports) and downloading options on results; and TreeView analysis of results. It also shows how the new conserved domain enhanced protein BLAST service (DELTA-BLAST) improves the sensitivity and specificity of protein BLAST and demonstrates two new sequence analysis services that have been added to the BLAST area of the NCBI site: Primer BLAST, an oligonucleotide primer designer and specificity checker, and a multiple protein sequence alignment tool (COBALT). These new aspects of BLAST provide easier access and results that are more comprehensive and easier to interpret and analyze.
