Requirements for securing special student and trainee pricing

A personal trainee subscription provides individual resident, fellow, medical, pharmacy, nursing, and dental student users with unlimited online access to either UpToDate® or UpToDate® Lexidrug™ (formerly Lexicomp®). Discounts are also available for groups of 50 or more trainees who order UpToDate together with one form of payment. To qualify for these special low prices, you must provide proof of your trainee status.

We must receive your proof of status before we can process your order. To make it easy for you, we offer a quick, convenient way to upload your proof of trainee status during the online checkout process. Alternatively, you can include it with orders placed by other methods, such as email, fax or mail. If your proof of status is not received within 30 days, your order will not be processed and will need to be resubmitted.

Students, residents, and fellows (trainees) must provide one form of proof of trainee status. Below are a few examples of forms we accept.

  • A signed, dated letter from the director of your program on letterhead from the institution stating you are currently in medical training and in good standing
  • A copy of the first and last page of your current contract indicating your medical trainee status and date
  • A legible copy of an ID badge bearing your name, medical trainee status designation, and future expiration date

How to submit proof of status

Please include your order form or confirmation number with your proof of status.

The easiest way to submit your proof of trainee status is to upload it online through our storefront. You may also upload your proof of status after you have ordered by visiting “Manage My Orders” in the My Account section.
