Accessing UpToDate Database

Every time you access the UpToDate database, you will need to authenticate (sign in) with your USF credentials.

The first time you access UpToDate through the link below you will be brought to the Registration page and will need to register with UpToDate to create a unique user account. This does not have to be tied to your USF email. The screen should look like this:

  1. To register, complete all fields and then click Submit Registration.
  2. If you already have an UpToDate Username and Password from a Personal Subscription or previous access, click the blue Log In hyperlink at the top of the Registration page. The Log In page will display.  Sign in with your existing credentials. This will retain all of your current CME/CE/CPD records.
  3. Upon completion of the registration process, you will receive a confirmation email from UpToDate with instructions on downloading the Mobile App.

Registration is a one-time process and you will be automatically signed in moving forward when you access UpToDate through this method.

If you have already used UpToDate, but have not yet registered for your own personal account, you will need to do so. You can do this by going to the "My Account" link in the upper right-hand corner of the home screen:


Then "Click here to register."
