How to register for UpToDate

The first time you access UpToDate following your search, you will see a form called “Register for an UpToDate account."

  1. Complete the form to register as a new user and create your own UpToDate username and password, which are separate from your Divisions of Family Practice website username and password.
  2. Click on “log in’ to enter an existing UpToDate username and password. This will connect your previous UpToDate account to your current access.

Note: It is possible, though not recommended, to skip this step and register later. You will still be able to search UpToDate and the system will track your CME credits, but you will not be able to submit your CME credits or access UpToDate through a mobile device until you register.

If you do not see the registration form, click on the ‘My Account’ link, then “Click here to register”

Once you have registered with UpToDate, you will receive an email that includes your UpToDate login.
