DynaMed Plus Tutorial

This brief video tutorial will walk you through basic navigation in DynaMed Plus.

 

Access Instructions

You can access DynaMed Plus in three different ways:

Option 1: Library Access via Internet Browser
This is the same method by which you can access any other library resource.

  1. Click on this link to DynaMed Plus.
  2. Sign into the proxy server using your RVU credentials.


Option 2: Remote Access via Internet Browser
This method allows you to bypass the library’s website and proxy server. Follow the steps below to create a personal username/password that will remain active for an entire year. You only need to complete steps 1-6 once, after which you can proceed directly to dynamed.com for all future DynaMed Plus uses.

  1. Click on this link to DynaMed Plus.
  2. Sign into the proxy server using your RVU credentials.
  3. On the top right corner of Dynamed Plus, click on Sign Up For Remote Access.
  4. Fill out the form asking for your name, email address, and affiliation, and submit.
  5. Find the email containing a link to complete your account setup. Check your junk mail if it is not in your inbox. Click on the link provided. Do this within 72 hours.
  6. Create a password.
  7. Go to www.dynamed.com/login and log in with your new username and password.


Option 3: Mobile App

This is a great option if you cannot count on having good access to Wi-Fi, such as if you were working in a remote location or one with slow wireless connection speeds. By downloading the DynaMed Plus mobile app, the entire program (including images and calculators) will be loaded onto your phone. This is a large file that has daily updates, and as a result, the app may cause your battery to deplete at a faster rate.

  1. Click on this link to DynaMed Plus.
  2. Sign into the proxy server using your RVU credentials.
  3. On the left side of the DynaMed Plus home page, under Spotlight, click on Get the DynaMed Plus Mobile App.
  4. Provide your email address and submit.
  5. Find the email containing the required steps to complete your account setup. Check your junk mail if it is not in your inbox.
  6. Click on the link to download the app from the iTunes Store or Google Play. Be sure to do this when you have access to Wi-Fi, as the file is large, and it may take 20-30 minutes to download.
  7. Once downloaded, reopen the email and click on the authentication link. Do this within 48 hours.
