STAT!Ref, a database of about 25 medical books, offers several new features with a new look that started this summer. The feature of “My Stat!Ref” allows you to customize your STAT!Ref experience. To use this feature, click the “Sign in to My STAT!Ref” link on the upper left-hand corner to setup a profile. You may create profiles that allow you to change a few display options and settings to your preference.

Display Options under STAT!Ref Profiles
After creating a STAT!Ref Profile, users may change settings by clicking 'My STAT!Ref' in the gray toolbar beside Help.
