MedEdPORTAL Now Indexed for MEDLINE in PubMed

The AAMC is pleased to announce that MedEdPORTAL is officially indexed by MEDLINE, the National Library of Medicine's premier bibliographic database, beginning with Volume 14 (2018). Indexed publications are searchable through the MEDLINE database where readers have access to the full text article plus the appendices hosted on our site.

Please note that articles published prior to 2018 will not be indexed by MEDLINE. However, MedEdPORTAL is transmitting publication data of past volumes to PubMed Central, the national archive of the National Library of Medicine. Archiving this content ensures that all articles published beginning in June 2016 will have a PubMed ID and be fully accessible to readers.
