Help & FAQs

What is NEJM Resident 360?

Designed specifically for residents, NEJM Resident 360 gives students and residents the information, resources, and support they need to approach their rotations — and life as a resident — with confidence. NEJM Resident 360 was created to help build their knowledge base and advance their careers while connecting them with a supportive community of fellow residents as well as experts for clinical and professional insight.

Specifically, NEJM Resident 360 helps residents build their foundational knowledge and supplement their internal medicine residency curriculum by quickly connecting them to landmark articles, teaching tools, and community members.

Can I join NEJM Resident 360 if I’m not a resident?

Anyone may create an account at NEJM Resident 360. The site is geared towards students, residents, and fellows but membership is open to anyone.

What does Resident 360 cost?

Access to NEJM Resident 360 is free. However, access to Rotation Prep content requires completing your NEJM Resident 360 profile and associating it with an individual or institutional subscription to NEJM Knowledge+, the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), or NEJM Journal Watch.

How do I demonstrate an individual or institutional subscription to NEJM Knowledge+, NEJM, or NEJM Journal Watch?

For individual NEJM, NEJM Knowledge+, or NEJM Journal Watch subscriptions, use the email associated with that subscription when you create your NEJM Resident 360 account.

For institutional subscriptions, you must log in once to NEJM Resident 360 from the campus of your institution, or through a VPN, and we will recognize the IP address. After that initial log in, we will remember the association, and you may sign on from anywhere, on any device.

How do I indicate that I have an individual subscription to NEJM or NEJM Journal Watch if I do not have a username or password?

If you have an individual subscription to NEJM or NEJM Journal Watch that includes online access but do not have a username and password yet, you will need to activate your online access. Learn how to activate your NEJM subscription or your NEJM Journal Watch subscription.

If you have an individual print subscription that does not include online access, please contact NEJM Customer Service for options on how to upgrade your subscription to include online benefits.

Can I unlock rotation content with an institutional account even if I’m away from my institution?

You will need to remotely connect to your institution’s network first. Once you have connected to the network, go to the NEJM Resident 360 site and you should be recognized as being on a site license.

I’ve created an account and it is linked to a subscription, why can’t I get access to the Rotation Prep content?

You need to go to your email and click “Confirm your email.”

How do I change my rotation preference or see content in other specialty rotations?

Click on Rotation Prep in the site header, after the rotation content loads, select for the “Change Rotation” button next to the name of the specialty you are currently viewing. Select this link and then choose your preferred rotation from the list.

How do I change my settings for the “What’s New on Resident 360” email newsletter?

Select “Click here to modify your email settings or unsubscribe” at the bottom of the email. This will take you to a screen where you change the frequency of the email: daily, weekly, every two weeks, or monthly.
