I asked our serials department to check with the publisher - unfortunately, the answer is you must either purchase an individual or iPad subscription to the journal, or purchase a single issue (see publisher's response below):
The app is available for free to all, and there is one free issue available (the February 23, 2012 issue) but the ability to download additional issues requires either an individual NEJM subscription, a subscription to the iPad Edition through Apple, or purchase of a single issue.
However, please do note that we have designed the NEJM.org browser experience on the iPad so that everyone, including institutional users, can have access to NEJM.org content using the device. So, while you can't download app issues with your institutional subscription, you can still access your institution's subscription to NEJM.org from your iPad.
