Welcome to the Becker Library Medical Apps Guide!
In this guide you will find information about medical apps provided to you via Becker Medical Library subscriptions.
Please note that for most of these apps we recommend that you complete the initial installation/set-up while on the WUSM internet network. You may also need to sign-in or access the app while on the WUSM network (or via Becker proxy) periodically to maintain access.
As a medical professional you are aware that there are both good and poor sources of health information available online. The same is true for medical apps. The apps highlighted in this guide are offered through reputable sources and many have been reviewed by doctors or other medical professionals. However, always be cautious when utilizing medical apps for patient care. Medical apps are not currently regulated (with the exception of the very few that require approval from the FDA), so they can be published by anyone, even those without a medical background. Reputable apps should clearly list creators, their credentials, and outline limitations of the app. Always exercise clinical judgment when using apps--if the information doesn't seem correct, then another source should be consulted.
