  1. All physicians in British Columbia will soon have access to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC library’s e-journals collection through the Read app. The College library is in the final stages of working with QxMD and we expect, by early September, College registrants will be able to set the app’s “Institutional Access” to the College and have access to over 2500 propriety e-journals including high impact titles such as Lancet, BMJ, Mayo Proceedings, American Journal of Psychiatry, and various Clinics of North America.

  2. Thanks for a great article sharing a way for us “older doctors” to keep up with the new generation! ;-)

  3. Thanks for the kind words about the Read by QxMD service! As it turns out, ‘Read’ was in development in Vancouver so very fitting that it should written up in UBC CPD’s “This Changed My Practice”.

    The app is freely available for iPhone, iPad, Android and web using the install link: http://qxmd.com/read

  4. As a fellow graduate from 1986 I relate to the feeling of inadequacy compared to the medical students, residents and young graduates when it comes to keeping up to date. I am pleased to see the College library will be making access to the Read app available to us. I look forward to accessing it and hope it will help keep me current.

  5. Access is now available to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC library’s journal subscriptions through the Read app by QxMD . For details on adjusting institutional access in the app, see “Read by QxMD” here: https://www.cpsbc.ca/library/search-materials/databases

  6. Thanks CPSBC I now use Read by QxMD every day: easy, increases my awareness of the latest topical articles, easy to search, and easy access to a downloadable pdf of the article.
