Signing up for mobile access to ClinicalKey is a short, three-step process. To start things off, you must create a ClinicalKey account if you do not already have one.

1. Create A ClinicalKey Account

1. On a computer, visit the Netter Library's subscription to ClinicalKey. 
2. At the top right of the ClinicalKey page, click Login.  

  • Click on Not Registered? to create an account.

  • Using your QU email address, fill in the required information on the registration page.  Be sure to enter the full version of your QU email address (

​3. Click Register when finished. ClinicalKey will display an activation message and send a confirmation email.
4. In the confirmation email, click the link to officially start your remote access. 

This will grant 180 days of remote (mobile) access to ClinicalKey. At the end of the 180 days, you will need to login to ClinicalKey from on campus to extend your mobile access. If it lapses, you will need to repeat this registration process to reactivate your remote (mobile) account.

2. Download the ClinicalKey app & login

1. Open the App Store on your mobile device.
2. Search for ClinicalKey and install at no charge.
​3. Once you are in the app, two options will appear - click in ClinicalKey.
4. Enter your ClinicalKey username and password used to create your account and start using the app!

3. Requesting Remote Access

1. On your computer, return to ClinicalKey and click the Login page.

2. Locate the Remote Access section of the Login page. Select Apply Now.

3. Enter your QU email address and select Continue.

4. An activation message will automatically be sent your email address. The message will be titled "Remote access request confirmation." There will be a link to click that will confirm your remote access request. Click it to confirm access.

5. Open the ClinicalKey app on your mobile device. If you are unable to view books or journals, try logging out and then signing back in. The pages tend to load slowly so be patient; it may take a few moments for things to appear
