Apps and Remote Access

Remote Access allows off-campus users to access the Library's subscription-based electronic resources as if they were on the Medical Center network. Many of our electronic resources are expensive subscription based services that are restricted to authorized users only. EZproxy and VPN are two ways to assure our publishers that you are a legitimate user when you are off campus.

ALL subscription resources on the Library's website will prompt for the medctr username and password (@wakehealth.edu)

Medical Center personnel can proceed directly to a resource where they will be prompted for their medctr username and password.

Medical Center personnel are:

  • WFUSM Medical and Graduate Students
  • WFUSM Faculty and Staff
  • AWFBH Hospital Staff
  • Atrium Faculty and Residents with @wakehealth.edu credentials 

Affiliated users must be approved by IT and the Library Director. 

Affiliated users include:

  • Preceptors
  • Approved users supporting institutional research, educational, and clinical missions of the Medical School and the Hospital

To begin the verification process for an affiliated user account, you must complete this form

Once approval is complete, log in from the Affiliate login page and use the assigned username and password. If you have questions or  experience problems, contact Brandy Hardy

Alumni are not permitted to access electronic resources off campus. This is a legally binding condition set by our vendors.
