The MHH has a campus licence for learning with original multiple-choice questions at Amboss. All enrolled students can set up access free of charge. The programme is designed for pre-clinical, clinical and PJ (practical year), i.e. from the 1st to the 13th semester.
Your student ID card is also your library card with the user number on the back. To activate it free of charge, first register online and then have your user card activated in the library by presenting your ID card or passport with registration certificate. You can use your library card to borrow books and access the library's electronic media and licensed databases from outside the library.
The loan period for books can be extended and the password changed via the user account. The titles of books borrowed, reservations and overdue fines are also displayed.
The HAN server enables external access to the library pages for students and staff of the MHH.

Doctoral theses (deposit copies)
Doctoral theses are submitted to the library and then checked. Only then will the doctoral certificate be issued. In addition to the mandatory submission, the dissertation can also be published on the Internet.
Doctoral candidates who have already left the Medical School can submit an application to continue using the electronic library services and the RefWorks literature management program. The prerequisite for this is that the thesis has already been registered with the doctoral office.
E-books licensed by the library are listed in the catalogue.
The EZB lists all electronically available journals in Germany and provides information on access options at the MHH.
In almost all databases used or licensed at the MHH you will find the MHH link system button. This is used to obtain the article.
If you found an article, e.g. in PubMed (the world's most widely used biomedical article database) but were unable to open it using the publisher's logo, use the MHH link system.
You can find a detailed description here.
