New database - AccessSurgery

AccessSurgery is the new database the Medical Library has licensed for the use of FIU HWCOM students and faculty. It provides medical students, surgical residents, and practicing surgeons with quick answers to surgical inquiries from trusted sources.

The content of this database include:
