Recommended E-Books

Some of these titles were in the MDConsult Collection. If you are not able to access them through these links, please see collection of links in the Accessing Former MDConsult Titles box immediately below. We have many of these titles from another source. More of these former MDConsult titles will appear in this new collection as time goes on. NELSON'S PEDIATRICS is in this current new collection!

The titles in the new collection have limited "seats" so please be efficient about getting what you need from the resource and not occupying a "seat" when you are not actually doing something with the book. Contact Maureen Clark with any questions or comments. Thanks!
