Medical Calculators

Medical Calculators

Clinical calculators assist in converting measurements and dosages, determining risk, and assessing patients. We have several top rated apps, software, and databases that will assist you in point-of-care decision making and allow you to use calculators in a range of specialties.

UpToDate: This resource offers web-based access. It allows you to enter values in commonly used formulas to obtain numerical data or to estimate the severity of a condition. Please note, UpToDate is available to NYMC students only. Faculty may contact Marie Ascher at 914-594-4207 or to discuss access.

Calculate by QxMD: This free, online resource is also available as an app. The calculators are organized according to specialty, and can be set to the imperial system of measurement or international system of units (SI). Save favorite and recently used calculators by creating an account, which can also be linked to your Read by QxMD account.
