SOM Resources for Remote Learners: COVID-19 Resources

COVID-19 Resources

As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, we will update this page frequently with the latest freely available resources to get you the information you need to best support our Northwell Health clinicians, and most importantly, care for our patients. 

If you would like a literature search run in PubMed for COVID-19 research and evidence for the care of specific patient populations (pediatrics, obstetrics, oncology, etc.) or more specific issues (ethics, surge planning, etc.) please contact your hospital librarian. 

If you need immediate access to the full-text of any article, please contact your hospital librarian, who can provide the full-text at no cost to you.

If you do not know how to contact your hospital librarian, please contact our Library at emil@northwell.edu for your librarian's contact information.

Check back as this list may become updated with more resources as they become available.  Newly added resources will be marked "New!" Report any technical difficulties with this LibGuide as provided here.

If you need access to point-of-care tools such as UpToDate or DynaMed or to the full array of  information resources available from Northwell Health Libraries, please contact emil@northwell.edu.
