    Is there anywhere that I can access online versions of surgical textbooks for free? I just checked out MD consult and it's a bit pricey. Thanks.

    Check with your university or hospital library. Many have subscriptions to MD Consult and many have remote access so you can access from home. I have access to MD consult thru 3 different associations!!!

    As for other sources - I don't know of any. Some textbooks give you a CD with the book on it and I know in my program these CD got loaned around so everyone could "borrow" the information.

    I think if you join ACS you get access to on-line stuff, including their textbook. I don't know of too many surgical texts which are on-line and have been purchased, but as tussy notes, check with your med school library.

    It's all over the hospital
    DOn't buy - will be outdated before you are done.
    Borrow, or buy used.
    My old Surg texts are worthless - pitched them 2 yrs ago.
