New Resource for UB Users – ClinicalKey

Posted on: |


The electronic resource MD Consult has been upgraded to a new product called ClinicalKey.  Produced by Elsevier, ClinicalKey is a search engine and database of peer-reviwed and evidence-based clinical information resources designed to support physician patient care decisions.  Content from 2004 to the present, updated daily.  CME credit is provided through the Cleveland Clinic.



  • Remote access requires a UBIT Name and Password.
  • ClinicalKey will be listed in HSL’s Biomedical Databases and the UB Libraries Databases by Title lists.
  • ClinicalKey link is also accessible via HUBNET from HSL’s website and UB’s Teaching Hospitals.
  •  All books and journals are integrated in “Electronic Journals.”
  •  All books BY TITLE are available under the “Electronic Books” list.
  •  All books BY TITLE are also indexed under the “Resources by Subject” listings at the bottom of the menu page.


  •  ClinicalKey offers a clinical search engine to a vast array of resources, including:
  • ALL Elsevier medical and surgical journals (over 500)
  • Selected third-party journals and content sources
  • ALL Elsevier medical and surgical reference books (over 1000)
  • ALL medical and surgical clinics of North America
  • ALL First Consult point-of-care clinical monographs
  • ALL Procedures Consult content and associated videos
  • ALL Clinical Pharmacology drug monographs from Gold Standard
  • ALL Elsevier medical and surgical videos (over 13,000+)
  • Millions of medical and surgical images
  • Over 2,000 Practice Guidelines
  • Elsevier and third-party published patient education handouts in both English and Spanish, where available.

         ClinicalKey includes First Consult content

  • The First Consult content portion is now fully integrated into the ClinicalKey product so there is no longer a separate link for First Consult as there was with MD Consult.
  • First Consult content may be filtered after doing a search in CK and then selecting the First Content tab under Content Type in the left column of the CK search page.
  • Those with a current First Consult iPhone app can still log-in to use it.  The new FC/CK app for iPhone will be available in the second quarter of 2013.
