Our Gabriel Correa Vélez Library supports the academic and research activities carried out at the Hospital through the search, selection, acquisition, organization and dissemination of high quality scientific information. We respond to requests related to logistical resources within 48 hours. In case a request requires more time to be solved, this in no case will exceed 10 working days.

For this purpose, we have access to databases such as ClinicalKEY, and subscriptions to journals such as New England, Journal Medicine and JAMA. relevant to the supervision of students.



  • ClinicalKey is a search engine for clinical information including articles, books, guidelines, procedures and reviews.

  • PubMed is the most important database in health sciences where you can find all the international literature in this field.

  • Micromedex is a database on pharmacology, including vademecum, calculators and interactions between drugs and other substances.

  • JAMA is the journal of the American Medical Association, published weekly. We also have access to 12 "sister" journals of JAMA.

  • The New England Journal of Medicine is one of the world's most prestigious journals in all areas of medicine.
