Under Your Journals @Ovid, alumni will also have full-text access to seventeen of the Current Opinion titles in Allergy and Clinical Immunology, Cardiology, Clinical Nutrition & Metabolic Care, Endocrinology Diabetes & Obesity, Gastroenterology, Hematology, Infectious Diseases, Lipidology, Nephrology & Hypertension, Neurology, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Organ Transplantation, Orthopaedic Practice, Pediatrics, and Urology.
