The new Access App from McGraw Hill Medical is a personalized interactive learning solution that makes studying easier and more efficient. Learners can search vetted and trusted medical content across a variety of mediums that best fit their learning needs, including: books and chapters (including exam-related texts), videos, podcasts, infographics, images, tables, and figures.


  • Find and save resources - search anything from symptoms to procedures and then favourite, or save to a collection.
  • Refine by content type - get the type of content you want to suit your learning style or time constraints.
  • Search within content - find the fine details you need
  • View figures and tables - view content in its entirety, or just the images and tables.
  • View content offline - whether it’s a case of bad wi-fi, or you are traveling, you can always take your content with you.
  • Curate new collections - save content into your own personal reference library, so you always know where your favourite resources are.
  • Personal dashboard - create and personalize your own dashboard, allowing you to tailor the Access experience to your needs.
  • This app has content from the full access to content from the following Access collections: AccessAnesthesiology and AccessMedicine.
