Up To Date Mobile Access

Mobile app available for UpToDate!

Before you can use it, you must first Register on the UpToDate homepage. I made a video and created step-by-step written instructions on the whole process.

After you create an account with UpToDate, you can download the mobile app (available for iOS and Android).

Log in with the UpToDate username and password you created, and you are ready to go!

You will get an email every 90 days prompting you to verify your account to renew your mobile access. This means that you need to log back into the web version of UpToDate (linked above) to reset the timer.
