Eponyms

By Ossus GmbH

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.

Description

Eponyms brings a short description of more than 1'700 common and obscure medical eponyms (e.g., Rovsing's sign, Virchow's node) to your Mac. A perfect tool to quickly look up the meaning of any eponym.

It uses the beautiful eponym database of Andrew J. Yee (http://www.eponyms.net/) who still maintains the database, updates can be installed right from within Eponyms.

Features:
• More than 1'700 eponyms, updates can be downloaded right from within the App
• Full text search
• 28 categories
• Customizable "starred" list to keep track of the eponyms you tend to forget
• List of recently accessed eponyms
• Learn mode
• Print the currently active list of eponyms

Learn mode randomly displays eponyms from the category you're currently visiting. This way you can either learn eponyms from a given category, only the ones that you've starred, the ones matching a given search term or just all of them.
