Mobile Apps for Health Sciences: DynaMed

A point of care tool. "Content is written by a world-class team of physicians and researchers who synthesize the evidence and provide objective analysis".

Installation Instructions

A new interface and app were released in August 2019.  These products are referred to as "DynaMed"; "DynaMed Plus" no longer exists.  

 

Go to the desktop version of DynaMed and click on UNIV OF SASKATCHEWAN SIGN IN at the top of the page.  If you already have a DynaMed account, sign in.  If you don't, click "Don't have a personal account?  Register now" to set one up.  

 

Download the DynaMed app from the App Store or Google Play store.   

  

From the app, choose "Sign In," rather than "Institutional Network," and sign in using your DynaMed user name and password.   Once you've logged in, you can choose one of three installation options:

  • Online Only: Use the app only while connected to the internet.

  • Partial Install: Store text and image thumbnails on your device. Full images are available when you are connected to the internet. This option helps you save space on your device.

  • Full Install: Store all DynaMed content on your device. You do not need to be connected to the internet to access content on the app.

Note: It is recommended that you are on a Wi-Fi connection for the initial download of DynaMed content as well as when updates become available.

 

Once you've logged in, the app is authenticated for 3 months.  Once the 3 months are up, you'll need to re-authenticate by signing into the desktop version of DynaMed using your username and password, and then signing into the app again.
