How to Authenticate

This works best from a computer, not a mobile device.

  1. Click on the MSU Library link to DynamedPlus  Please login with your MSU Net ID and password if prompted to do so.
  2. Click on the Sign In/Create Account button in the top right corner of the Dynamed Plus homepage.
  3. Enter your account details. Try to use your email. Make sure the "institution" field says Michigan State University dynamed login screen with MSU as institution that means you are authenticated properly and will get an activation key so you don't pay for the app.
  4. Submit your account information and an authentication key will be emailed to you.
  5. Open the Dynamed email from your mobile device and tap on the authentication key link. Note: This authentication key will expire within 48 hours. After 48 hours you must request a new key.

Because you signed up for mobile access after logging in using the library link above you will be authenticated to use the Dynamed Plus mobile app through the MSU Libraries subscription. Your subscription will lapse in 12 months. To continue to have access to the app there is a link within the app to send yourself a new authentication code.

Updating Content

When opening the app for the first time you will be asked to start the initial content download. It is recommended that you are on a Wi-Fi connection for this process, as well as installing any future updates. After content is installed the app can be used without a wireless signal.

You will be notified of future updates to DynaMed content by a notification symbol on the Updates button at the bottom of the app. Tap the button to install. You can also choose to Check for Updates.


Skyscape or Omnio Apps

Previous versions of DynaMed mobile used the Skyscape and/or Omni apps to provide access to Dynamed content. If you have used these previously it is not necessary to uninstall these apps to use the new DynaMed app. However, the Skyscape and Omnio apps will no longer be updated with new DynaMed content.
