How do I access the medical Clinical Key?

There is a separate FAQ for Clinical Key (Student Nursing and Midwifery), which is a separate resource.


Access Clinical Key Physician, the medical Clinical Key via this link.

Note that we do not have access to Clinical Key Student Medicine.

If you are taken to a University of Leicester login page, login with your University IT credentials.

To access your personal account in Clinical Key, or if you are having problems logging in, click Login on the Clinical Key home page.   

Choose Other Institution Login, and enter Leicester in the left hand search box.  Follow the instructions.

If you are using an iPad, click the three lines in the top right, choose Login and Other Institution Login.  Here is a video with a demonstration. 

If you have used NHS Athens in the same browser session, you may be denied access to Clinical Key altogether.  If that happens, delete all cookies and clear your browser cache.   Restart the browser and try again.

If that does not work, contact for advice.
