NetID - Your Access to Online Resources from Dana Medical Library

Physicians who teach UVM students at clinical sites are entitled to Clinical Faculty status and rank.  As a UVM faculty member, you are also entitled to a NetID (Network ID). 

You can use your NetID to access electronic resources from Dana Medical Library such as:

  • Up to Date (a point of care database)
  • Ovid Medline (a datbase of scholarly and evidence-based articles)
  • MedU (a collection of virtual patient cases). 

Your NetID can be up to 8 characters long and is usually some combination of your first (& perhaps middle) initial and your last name.  It may also include a number if someone else at UVM has a name similar to yours.

For example, if your name was Charles A. Dana, your NetID might be:

  • cdana
  • cadana
  • cdana1
