What's In This Guide?


Welcome to the Patient and Family Guide,

We put this guide together to help patients and their families find resources to make informed health decisions. 

The information in the Patient and Family Guide is primarily intended for patients and family members who come to the University Medical Center, so some of the resources are specific to this area and may not be relevant to non-locals. Some of the electronic resources provided may only be available on networked computers - feel free to stop by the library and use our computers to access them.

If searcing on your own, please see the Medical Library Association's page, Find and Evaluate Health Information on the Web, for help finding trustworty sources of health information.
