Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

This 28th Edition, featuring over 107,000 terms and definitions, has been thoroughly reviewed and updated to make it the most reliable resource available for healthcare specialists of all kinds. 45 prominent medical consultants have reviewed each dictionary entry in the areas of endocrinology, gastroenterology, geriatrics, and rheumatology.

* Easy-to-find Subentries
* Building Blocks - 90% of medical language comes from 1200 Greek and Latin words. To aid in learning these terms, the suffixes, prefixes and combining forms are listed as separate entries, denoting that derivateves stem from them.
