Databases - Medicine, Sciences, Epidemiology

Since Public Health is an interdisciplinary field touching on a wide range of subject areas, be sure to search interdisciplinary databases (see list below) for literature in addition to health sciences resources. Ask a librarian if you'd like help selecting databases in your particular area of study.
