Slide Sets include a summary of key points, plus all visuals and citations. You can find Slide Sets for Original and Review Articles, Case Records of the MGH, Clinical Problem-Solving, and Clinical Practice articles.
You can also download images, illustrations, and tables from NEJM as a PowerPoint slide. Each slide includes the title and caption information, and the image caption is automatically added to the Notes section of your PowerPoint. These images and captions can be transferred to the ESFCOM branded slides.

NEJM Quick Takes
The NEJM Quick Take videos are short animations that summarize key findings of an original research article and their broader implications for research and practice in a visual format.
With the Interactive Medical Cases, you can virtually manage an actual peer-reviewed case. These include videos, lab results, and commentary to explain important clinical concepts. There are also periodic knowledge checks with multiple choice answers and explanations.
Videos in Clinical Medicine demonstrate common clinical procedures, and could complement the videos in Bates’ Guide to Physical Examination. The videos are peer-reviewed for accuracy and chaptered for easy reference. They provide a concise review of the procedure, including preparation, equipment, and so on. They also come with a PDF summary of the procedure, available for download. There are over 60 videos currently available, and more are being added.
Images in Clinical Medicine are another visual aid for teaching. NEJM publishes two images each week, which include a visual example of a common clinical presentation along with accompanying text. These are intended to help with recognizing common conditions and make more timely, accurate diagnoses.
Clinical Practice Articles begin with the presentation of a single case, and then give you a complete description of diagnostic and treatment strategies, therapeutic options, areas of uncertainly, and treatment guidelines. These are one of the types of articles that include a Slide Set.
NEJM Resident 360 is designed to help students and residents prepare for their clinical rotations and careers through articles, videos, podcasts, and discussion forums. While the students won’t be going on traditional rotations, the information here can still be helpful.
To access the Presentation Maker and Saved Content tools in ClinicalKey, you must first make a personal ClinicalKey account. Access ClinicalKey through the library website, then select "Register" near the top right corner. Complete the form.
Select an Image
When you are viewing content in ClinicalKey, you can select any image that is included with that content to reveal additional tools.
Image Tool Options
After selecting an image, you will be presented with a number of different tool options. To use the Presentation Maker, select the box with the inset triangle.
You can either A) add the image to an existing presentation by selecting "Add Presentation" and the appropriate collection, or B) create a new presentation by selecting "Create New".
After doing this, you have two options: if you want to view your presentation, select "Add and view presentation"; if you want to simply add the image and continue reviewing content, select "Add".
When viewing your presentations, you can see your existing presentations along the left and the selected presentation in the middle. You can create a new presentation here by selecting "Create new presentation" at the top left. You can also add additional images to a presentation from Saved Content (this will be addressed shortly).
To export a presentation, select "Export" at the right side of the screen - this will download your presentation as a PowerPoint file.
Your exported presentation will look like this, with ClinicalKey-branded slides and citation information. You can adapt this format however you would like, but you must include citation information for each image.
You can also add an image to your Saved Content section. When you have selected an image and are viewing the available tool options, select the star icon to add an image to your Saved Content.
You may create tags to organize the images in your Saved Content, but this is optional. If you want to view your Saved Content after saving an image, select "Go to Saved". If you want to keep reviewing content, select "Done".
Your Saved Content can include any ClinicalKey content, not just images.
Accessing Presentation Maker and Saved Content
To access these tools in ClinicalKey, you can select the menu button indicated by 3 horizontal lines at the top right corner. From here, you can find your Saved Content and Presentations.
