Because the online subscription offered through the Micromedex Academic Program is intended specifically for students enrolled in healthcare-related curriculums and faculty/instructors that teach those curriculums, access must be restricted to those users. For access via desktop or laptop/notebook computer while in a patient care facility, they must utilize the facility's subscription—they are not to access via the user name and password provided for the academic subscription or share the access information with others.
