UTD (1)Through a partnership with the major health providers and organizations in the province, UpToDate Anywhere is now available free of charge to all physicians in the province and for all staff in organizations funded by Manitoba Health.

Doctors Manitoba, Manitoba Health, the University of Manitoba, Regional Health Authorities, Diagnostic Services Manitoba (DSM), and CancerCare Manitoba worked together to establish and fund a provincial contract with Up to Date that provides health care providers in Manitoba with access through any desktop or mobile device.

  1. I would like to access the Up To Date website on my iPhone. I believe I have a faculty appointment with U of M and also work for Prairie Mountain Health as a physician in Ste Rose.

    How can I establish a user name and password acceptable to Up to Date?

  2. Hi
    I already have a personal subscription to UTD that expires at the end of the month. Your instructions above say to login on the “left side” of the page. Which page? UTD? This page? It is not clear. Can you please provide more specifics on how I should proceed so I don’t have to create a new login etc.. Thanks
