Core Books: Third and Fourth Year Curriculum Book List


Core Book List

The pages on this guide are arranged to correlate with your courses' syllabi. Each page will indicate if the required and recommended books for your course are available via the FAU Libraries. If the book is available as an eBook, click on the title to access the book on the vendor platform and sign in with your FAU NetID and password (for ClinicalKey titles, click either organization option when presented). If you would like to purchase a print copy of an LWW book, a vendor discount is available for all LWW titles. Reach out to Tiffany using the "Contact Us | Get Help" page if you would like to purchase an individual title from LWW using the code.

Error Messages

1/25/2024 - A recent update to the LWW Health Library Platform is directing textbook links to the main page for LWW instead of the exact link to the textbook. If you are trying to access a book on the LWW Health platform, like Bates' Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking, click on the Texts icon and then scroll through the list of textbooks to access the textbook you need.  We are actively working with the publisher to resolve this issue.


If you have any trouble accessing the books or chapters, please contact the medical librarians Michelle Keba Knecht and Tiffany Follin at with a screenshot of the error message you received or check out the library’s troubleshooting page at
