URMC faculty, staff and students can now access MD Consult’s electronic books, Clinics, journals and practice guidelines using their web-enabled smartphones like the iPhone, Blackberry, Treo and others. MD Consult Mobile is available for URMC users at no charge as part of Miner’s institutional subscription to MD Consult.
Get started with four easy steps:
1. If you don’t already have a personal account for MD Consult, access MD Consult through the Quick Links on Miner’s web site.
2. Click on “Create an Account” on the top right.
3. Complete the registration form, create your username and password, click “Submit” and log out.
4. Go to http://mobile.mdconsult.com using your mobile browser and log in using your personal account. MD Consult Mobile will automatically remember your user name and password.
The system is designed for the iPhone, Blackberries, and phones that use Windows Mobile 6. However, other phones do have the option to click “Continue” and use without formatting.
Phones outside of the iPhone and T-Mobile G1 may not display all of the system formatting with their built-in browser. Users of other phones can download the Opera Mini browser which supports the system formatting. A link to the Opera Mini browser is located in MD Consult Mobile, on the Information menu (the “I” button) under “Device Configuration.”
