PLEASE NOTE: Due to a technical issue, effective Monday, December 4/23, you may be required to re-register for access to the Lexicomp mobile app
AHS-affiliated individuals, such as University of Alberta Medical Residents, are suggested to download Lexicomp through the Alberta Health Services - Knowledge Resource Service as their needs focus on patient care. This is contrasted to University students whose use centers on course study.
