MU-COM Preceptors requesting electronic access

Access we offer...

1.  The most common and easiest way access method is via the username/password granted to you from Marian University when you are granted Clinical Faculty status by our Tenure and Promotions credentialing committee. If you do not have a Marian Preceptor username/password you may contact Kailyn Anderson @

2.  A much less common way is through Open-Athens (Username/Password required). OpenAthens is an advanced access management system that simplifies access to subscription-based content by giving users a single username and password. This is a back-up access model for our partners because of IT restrictions at their provider site. Please contact Chris Bishop, Medical Librarian @ Marian University. 1-317-955-6584 or

Can I get UpToDate access?

Unfortunately, access to UpToDate is NOT permitted through the MU-COM licensing agreement. Clinical Faculty access to UpToDate is NOT provided.
