Why Create a Personal Acccount?

In order to take advantage of some of the features of the platform, like using the mobile app, taking quizzes, or using the flashcards, you need to create a My Access account. This account will work across the AccessMedicine, AccessSurgery, Access Physiotherapy, FA Davis Collection, and OMBID McGraw Hill services.

Step 1: Access the database from the library. Next, create an account by clicking on the Des Moines University banner in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

Step 2: Click on "Don't have a MyAccess account?" to create an account. This account is personal - it is not connected to your DMU credentials. Please do not use the password you use to access D2L or other DMU Single-Sign on services.

Follow these next steps if you are interested in the App.

App Tech Tip: If you have been off campus for 3 months and only use the app, you may be asked to re-authenticate your affiliation with DMU.  Access the database using the library links, then sign in to your MyAccess Account  You will then be able to access the DMU subscription for 90 days from any location, after which you must repeat this process for continued access.
