Resources for Residents and Interns

All the library resources available to residents and interns at PNWU.

Interns and residents in PNWU-affiliated residency programs may request access to PNWU’s licensed electronic resources. Please refer to Accessing Licensed Electronic Resources for more information and to request a login. Permissions are limited by our vendor agreements, and are subject to change without notice. Accounts expire at the end of your tenure at an affiliated residency program.

Once your PNWU network account is created, you can access full text articles in MEDLINE Complete by logging in with your PNWU username and password. You can also search the regular PubMed site and order articles through Loansome Doc. (Please note: The PubMed@PNWU link will not work with your resident login.)

The Library Search tool is accessible to all users, but links to full text articles may be blocked due to site license restrictions. For best results, please use the resources listed below.
