ClinicalKey: Clinical Presentation of Monkeypox

ClinicalKey’s Overview of Monkeypox

PCOM is closely monitoring the national and local monkeypox (MPX) outbreak and will adjust PCOM operations as needed to respond to any cases within the PCOM community and surrounding areas. In an effort to identify potential spikes in cases within our community we ask that you notify MPXnotice@pcom.edu if you are diagnosed with or develop symptoms consistent with MPX.

‌We strongly encourage employees and students to learn about MPX and take steps to protect themselves.
