The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) not only provides access to journal articles, but other online content including multimedia (interactive patient case review, videos, images, and audio).

  2. Click Multimedia at the top of the page
  3. To browse for specific types of multimedia (by specialty, media type, and date) scroll down and click on Filter (under Latest in Multimedia)
  4. When viewing Multimedia (such as Interactive Patient Cases), you will have an option to create a free account to save your progress and resume later. The free account is required in order to save answers to questions in the patient cases. 
  5. Multimedia content is best viewed on a laptop or desktop. Some content in NEJM will not play on smartphones or other mobile devices due to the small size of the device screen.
