Health Medical Journal Databases

When doing research on health law topics, it is often useful or even necessary to make use of health science materials. Researchers and practitioners in the the health science field rely on journal articles as a primary communication medium because they can be published much more quickly than books, thus rapidly spreading the latest medical information to those who need it. Textbooks are relied on secondarily, to provide a standard overview of a particular medical practice area. To identify standard medical textbooks, see "Medical Books and Literature" in the Attorneys' Medical Deskbook or contact a librarian at the Health Sciences Library (Dahlgren Medical Library).
