Going through medical school, I found that more often than not, knowing the etymological background of a term turns out to be a surprisingly helpful source for mnemonics. However, due to the lack of a comprehensive glossary out there, I started compiling all the terms I found into a website, which you’re now browsing.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me about anything concerning the site. Most of the entries are – see the section “sources & copyrights” on terms – taken from various sources. If you’re the owner of one of those sources and would like them to be taken down, please contact me and I’l follow up as fast as possible.
