Here are the different methods of access for institutional Access customers:

IP Authentication Institutional subscribers submit their network IP ranges to McGraw-Hill Medical during subscription setup. These ranges are verified and loaded into the system and all users coming from inside the range are automatically provided seamless access from any IP-authenticated computer.

Referring URL/Domain Institutional subscribers can place registered links to our site(s) behind their secure login (for example, a library site that has already validated a student). The institution must register the domain and URLs where the links are placed with McGraw-Hill Medical during subscription setup. These links will then automatically and seamlessly log the user into the site(s) every time they are clicked.

EZproxy Configuration Remote access to the Access resources via EZProxy requires EZproxy 2.4c GA (2004-03-21) or later combined with this database definition:

T [Insert Site Name] 

U [Insert Site URL] 

DJ [Insert Site Domain] 


For example, the database definition for AccessMedicine would be as follows:

T: AccessMedicine  




Shibboleth Authentication Shibboleth is a single-sign-on method that is attached to the institution, and allows them one sign on to multiple products they subscribe to.  If an institution has a Shibboleth Federation ID they would like to register, they can contact Tech Support to set this up.  As of May 2018 we support the following federations:



UK Access Management Federation
