Starfleet Medical Database or Medical library was a nexus of information on diseases and illnesses encountered by Starfleet, including transporter psychosis, Symbalene blood burn and Terellian Death Syndrome. The database was fully searchable via a starship library computer and contained information on both symptoms and treatment. All Starfleet personnel had access to the database.

Lieutenant Reginald Barclay often used the database to self-diagnose himself before consulting a real doctor, much to the dismay of USS Enterprise-D chief medical officer Beverly Crusher. (TNG: "Realm of Fear", "Genesis")

Doctor Julian Bashir checked the medical library because of the aphasia virus Chief Miles O'Brien suffered from in 2369. (DS9: "Babel")

The script of "For the Uniform" furthermore mentioned the medical database being a part of the USS Defiant databases having been wiped by Michael Eddington.
