UMLS API Technical Documentation

Welcome to the UMLS API Technical Documentation. There are 2 implementations of the UMLS API available for use:
  1. UMLS REST API - a set of convenient URI patterns and Json output that offer links for important UMLS entities such as CUIs, atoms, and subsets such as the SNOMED CT-> ICD-10-CM map. Code samples are available in the documentation as well as on github.
  2. UMLS SOAP API - install all the classes for the SOAP API using Maven as described in the installation documentation. Code samples within the documentation are available, mainly in Java.
