University College London (UCL) Medical Students

Undergraduates from all clinical years come to Essex Hospitals to gain experience and we have large numbers of final year students who come to hone their clinical skills before the finals examinations. All medical students are welcome to join the Library.

On the first day of your placement, you will be given an introductory tour to the Library. You will be automatically registered with the library when you begin your placement with the Trust. To receive your library card please present your NHS ID badge at the library counter. You will be given a library card, which will be needed each time you borrow, renew or return items. We ask users to read and abide by the conditions of membership listed here.

Students can register for an NHS Athens password while on placement in the NHS. NHS electronic resources will be different to those provided by the university although they may be some content overlap.
