Retrieving Article Details by Slug and SectionId

The DynaMedex API GET /content/slugs{slug}/detail/sections/{sectionId} endpoint returns the section matching the slug and section ID provided.  The slug and section ID to retrieve are required parameters for the endpoint.

To Get a Basic Article (example):

Gather the following information for the request:

  • An access token. Please see Use the Client Credentials Grant for further information.
  • The slug of the article to retrieve
  • The section ID to retrieve.  This can be a section name, such as "adultDosageSection", or, if you just want the first section - "first_section".



The request above is for the section called adultDosageSection in the article /drug-monograph/acebutolol.  Many DynaMed and DynaMedex endpoints return slugs in the form /pubtypeId/articleTitle.  The slug can be used, including the lead slash,  with this endpoint.
