The library in the medical University of Varna provides a two-month trial access to the medical data base with clinical cases - UpToDate.
The system UpToDate is an information recourse which is built on the evidence reviewed and evaluated data. Its main purpose is to assist physicians in taking decisions in their clinical practice.
The system UpToDate contains materials from the field of all medical specialties, in which authors are more than 5 100 physicians, editors and reviewers. The latest medical information to give verifiable evidence-based recommendations is used in the editing process. Over 9000 full-text topics are included in the system. Specialists from over 20 000 hospitals worldwide use the system UpToDate in their clinical practice. Physicians and medical students can find information about symptoms, treatment methods (including pharmacotherapy), drugs information (dosage, side effects, interactions), etc.
UpToDate includes also a list with medical calculators in addition to the drug data bases. The system contains free information about patients.
The access to the data base is through the computers on the premises of the University (the main building, the Faculty of dental medicine, the Medical College and the e-library in the University Hospital "St. Marina").
