Clinical Faculty and Preceptors

In appreciation for your service as a preceptor or clinical faculty, the Health Professions Division Library of Nova Southeastern University provides you complimentary access to all of the print and online materials of the HPD Library. 

Resources include electronic full-text journals and clinical texts and access to our print collection as well as databases such as MEDLINE, CINAHL, PsycInfo, MD Consult, Up to Date, DynaMed and the Cochrane EBM databases.

Services include liaison librarian services including library instruction, orientation for new faculty and research assistance.

Please contact the department (such as the College of Osteopathic Medicine) to which you are associated as a clinical faculty member as they must authorize your access to the library databases.
