How do I access First Consult on my mobile device?


As part of the Health Sciences Library's subscription to ClinicalKey, affiliates of the University of Virginia have free, unlimited access to the First Consult app for iOS devices. Create a personal ClinicalKey account through the Library's subscription, download the app, and use it anywhere you take your mobile device (even in areas without wireless coverage).

Step by Step: 
  1. On a Windows or Mac computer, visit the Health Sciences Library's subscription to ClinicalKey, via the Health Sciences Library web page.
  2. At the top right of the ClinicalKey page, click Login.  Click Not Registered? to create an account
  3. On your iOS device (iPhone, iPod, or iPad), visit the App store. Search for "First Consult" and install the free First Consult app on your device. 
  4. Once installed, log in to First Consult on your mobile device with your ClinicalKey user name and password. You should now have access to First Consult's differential diagnosis and other information on your mobile device, even when wireless access is unavailable.
