Introduction to New Medical Terms
Congratulations, you’ve landed on the New Medical Terms website, which is the front end of the first new medical dictionary, The Modern Medical Dictionary (MMD) to have been compiled in nearly 80 years (the Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary was first published in 1940). The primary target audience is the medical student, for whom a medical dictionary should be a useful tool but, because it too often lacks needed information, is not. The MMD was designed from the ground up to address this deficiency, by providing students and health professionals with blocks of reliable up-to-date information. More details on the website and the MMD database follow below.
