Resources for Adjunct Clinical Faculty

Resources available to adjunct clinical faculty.


Adjunct clinical faculty 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 each year on June 30 for ACFs who have had no preceptor activity within the past 12 months.

Once your PNWU network account is created, you can find 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 preceptor 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.
