UMHS is currently trialingJAMAevidence- the premier online resource for the teaching, learning, and application of evidence-based medicine, brought to you by McGraw-Hill
and the JAMA Network. Evidence-based learning is a necessity for the curriculum of medical students. With JAMAevidence, you are provided an authoritative, comprehensive website that will help you identify, appraise, and use the best available evidence to
assess health problems and the outcomes of health care.
Online Education Guides: Online Education Guide slide sets including teaching points to enhance classroom and conference learning.
Exclusive online-only content including podcasts, a searchable
glossary, and more from the leading minds in evidence-based
medicine. All linked directly to reference articles on the JAMA Network journals.
Interactive Features: Powerful
interactive features including functional calculators and
customizable worksheets focusing on critical appraisal skills
and mastering the information cycle.
To (re)activate remote access you will need to first be logged into the UMHS platform for AccessMedicine, and then login with your personal MyAccess account login that was sent to you when you first enrolled at UMHS. (If
you are in an IP authenticated location you will automatically land on
the UMHS platform for these McGraw Hill Medical Sites using any of the
links from the LMS or the Library webpages for AccessMedicine.)
This fun, educational feature allows
users to test their diagnostic skills in assessing conditions where a visual
element is key to the correct diagnosis, whether an EKG, a CT scan, a plain
film X-ray, a skin lesion, or a pathology slide. Many conditions in medicine
appear to be have similar features, so the ability to spot key differences in
visual clues is an essential part of clinical reasoning.
This new Visual Case Challenge
presents two conditions in each patient case; you can choose the correct diagnosis
just based on the visual clue, or request further patient data before making
the diagnosis. They have also included Clinical Pearls in each case for a
complete learning experience.
The Harrison's Visual Cases modules are
available under the Cases tab of AccessMedicine.

PubMed comprises more than 30 million citations for biomedical
literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books.
Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and
publisher web sites.
Using the UMHS Outside Link to PubMed
allows UMHS students and faculty to locate any full text that may be available through our
UMHS library subscriptions. When you search PubMed using
this special link to the new PubMed interface, you will see the UMHS
logo link appear in the top right area of the article record page. The logo is a
link back to the full text available from our EBSCO journal database
may also create your own personal login to NCBI and then login to your MyNCBI account.This will allow you
to see the UMHS logo as well as save your searches, among other things.
The new PubMed interface is now live! Check it out!
This short tutorial demonstrates the features of the new EBSCO Concept Map. The Concept Map gives researchers a visual way to interact with their searches while also exploring additional related topics. This special new searching feature has now been added to the Anne Ross Library's Discovery Search for UMHS students and faculty! Check it out!
The Oxford Textbook of Medicine is published online and in hard copy, currently in the 6th edition with 4 volumes. Having been regularly updated for many years, the production of this latest and very
substantially updated edition, provides a moment when it is natural and
proper to reflect on what has changed in Medicine—and what has not—in
"Modern medicine has much to offer patients and their doctors. Advances in
biomedical sciences, the broader context of health and disease, patients
and their expectations, and access to medical knowledge are some of the
key areas examined in detail among the 30 sections of the book.
Sections include introductory sections on patients and their treatment,
background to medicine, cell biology, and immunological mechanisms, as
well as more subject-specific sections such as infectious diseases,
neurological disorders, cardiovascular disorders, rheumatology, and the
kidney, as well as many more."
The Anne Ross Library Reference collection now has the complete hard copy set of the 6th edition for the use of our faculty and students.
The International Network of Agencies for Health Technology Assessment (INAHTA) has launched the HTA Database 2.0. This new and improved international HTA database provides a single platform to search records of completed and ongoing health technology assessments (HTAs) from around the world. Previously produced by the NHS Center for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD), this new rebuild of INAHTA includes:
Streamlined and strengthened search function
Expanded records containing more abstract information
Ultrasound Training Enhances the UMHS Medical Student Experience
UMHS has acquired an ultrasound machine to enhance the students learning experience and their diagnostic skills through hands-on practice.
Guided by Dr Adegbenro Fakoya, Course Director of Histology & Associate Professor of Gross Anatomy & Histology here at UMHS, our students are thrilled with the valuable opportunity to personally give this indispensable diagnostic tool a test drive!
To further support these efforts, the Anne Ross Library has acquired four new key medical reference titles to augment the students understanding and knowledge of ultrasound procedures and diagnostic capabilities.
"Now in the fully updated 5th edition with more than 2000 new images, 380 new videos, and new content throughout, Diagnostic Ultrasound (2 volume set), remains the most comprehensive and authoritative ultrasound resource available. Spanning a wide range of medical specialties and practice settings, it provides complete, detailed information on the latest techniques for ultrasound imagining of the whole body; image-guided procedures; fetal, obstetric, and pediatric imaging; and much more. Up-to-date guidance from experts in the field keeps you abreast of expanding applications of this versatile imaging modality and helps you understand the ""how"" and ""why"" of ultrasound use and interpretation"
"This comprehensive book provides an in-depth examination of a broad range of procedures that benefit from ultrasound guidance in the point-of-care setting. It covers common procedures such as ultrasound-guided central and peripheral venous access to regional nerve blocks, temporary pacemaker placement, joint aspirations, per-cutaneous drainage, a variety of injections and airway management. Chapters examine a variety of topics critical to successful ultrasound procedures, including relevant sonoantomy, necessary equipment, proper preparation, potential complications, existing evidence and how to integrate these procedures into clinical practice. For each procedure, the book includes step-by-step instructions and discusses the advantages of ultrasound guidance over traditional techniques. Providing rich procedural detail to help in clinical decision making,
The Ultimate Guide to Point-of-Care Ultrasound-Guided Procedures is an indispensable, go-to reference for all health care providers who work in a variety of clinical settings including primary care, emergency department, urgent care, intensive care units, pediatrics, pre-hospital settings and those who practice in the growing number of new ultrasound programs in these specialties."
Essential Ultrasound Anatomy, new first edition from Wolters Kluwer for 2020, Dr. Mario Loukas & Dr. Danny Burns provide the essentials of the anatomy and physics of ultrasound, as well as methods and imaging techniques involved in ultrasonography.
Pocket Guide & Protocols for Abdominal Ultrasound, new first edition from Wolters Kluwer for 2020, Steven Penny provides an overview of abdominal sonography.
Access Medicine has added some new functionality to it's Q&A section. As you know, your MyAccess profile keeps track of your practice quiz
performances. However, it only lists how many questions you took, the
score, and the date/time you took that quiz. This makes it difficult to
quickly identify what that quiz may have been related to.
Students now have
the ability to rename their quizzes so they can easily identify that quiz for
future reference. To help demonstrate this new functionality, Access Medicine has
recorded this brief tutorial: Renaming Quiz Enhancement. This new
functionality should be particularly helpful to those students using the
Q&A and the Board Review Q&A.
Please contact Ann Celestine at the Library if you need assistance with your personal MyAccess login to Access Medicine, or otherwise navigating the database.
