The Advocate Health - Midwest Library offers exam proctoring services at two of our locations: Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee, WI and Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, IL.
Exam proctoring service is available only to currently employed Advocate Health - Midwest teammates and is provided free of charge.
Proctoring will be scheduled at a mutually convenient time for library staff and the student. Advance notice of at least one week is required.
Proctors may not be able to monitor a student continuously during an exam. Requirements should be agreed upon before the day the test is to be administered.
The student is responsible for verifying with the issuing institution that the Library can meet the institution's requirements, for coordinating the transfer of the exam, and for any costs associated with receiving or returning test materials.
Exam proctoring service is limited based on the availability of personnel, facilities, time and technology and the Library may deny a proctoring request.
Contact us for more information or to schedule proctoring.
Literature search results are typically delivered within five business days. If you have an urgent patient care request, we will do our best to accommodate you. Requests for literature searches are not monitored on weekends or holidays.
