A consistent factor that underpins healthcare, regardless of the setting or country in which it is delivered, is the jargon that surrounds clinical practice. Medical terminology is part of this jargon. So understanding medical terminology is a key to understanding the language used in healthcare.

We explain spelling and pronunciation conventions and the use of abbreviations, acronyms, eponyms and symbols.
