The mobile web version of the DSM V is available for free to all Washington University School of Medicine students, faculty, staff, and residents. In order to have full access to the DSM V you will need to follow these steps:

  • Go to
  • On the top of the screen click on the "My POL" link on the top of the screen
  • Create a "MyPOL" account (must be on WashU network when creating your account)
  • On your mobile device, open a web browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, etc.), and go to
  • Scroll towards the bottom of the page and click on the "Sign In" link. Sign into the account you created

Once you follow these steps you can access the DSM V mobile website from anywhere off and on campus. You need to log-in to the site from the Washington University School of Medicine Internent network at least once every 90 days to maintain access off campus.
