Medical Reference Desk

Our Reference Desk section was designed and assembled to help the consumer-researcher and medical professional access highly useful tools and hard to find resources.

Acronym Search: Since many health and medical articles contain acronyms (words formed from the first letter a multi-word name), we have included an Acronym Search box powered by Medilexicon. With the first search box, you can just type in the acronym or abbreviation in question (ie - APHA) and press Go!. The second box allows you to type in keywords and returns a list of all possibile abbreviations.

Medical Associations: When researching a condition or disease, sometimes it's good to get information directly from the horse's mouth, as the old saying goes. Our recently updated Medical Association directory features more then 230 medical academies, associations, organizations, foundations, and societies from the United States, and in some cases, Britain, Canada and Australia and reaches across 112 different categories. Associations are categorized by an alphabetical/subject combination.
