Genetic Counseling : Remote Access

This page is designed for students who enroll in the graduate program in Genetic Counseling at UC Irvine School of Medicine. It includes online links to the required textbooks and other online resources.

Remote Access

If you haven’t connected to the UCI Libraries from off-campus before, the Connect from off-Campus VPN Software tutorials provide can help you. 

Note: 
WebVPN does not require you to download additional software, but you will encounter problems accessing PubMed@UCI and most of the medical resources and databases. Therefore, you must download, install, and configure the software VPN before visiting PubMed@UCI and resources such as Access Medicine, films and videos, etc. 

When configuring the VPN software, be sure to change the default “Group" from WebVPN to UCIFULL. Once you login and connect to the VPN software with your UCInetID, you have full access to all the UCI Libraries online resources with a few exceptions from the Law Library.
