The clinical decision support or Point-of-Care database DynaMed (comparable to UpToDate) is freely available in the UMM hospital and faculty networks and is aimed specifically at physicians.

Several thousand uniformly structured Topic Summaries are available. The database is updated daily. Current literature is systematically selected and evaluated, e.g. by indicating Levels of Evidence and Strong/Weak recommendations, see What we publish.
