There is no 'best' medical dictionary - there are a variety of medical dictionaries suited for different needs. To find the one that best suits the medical definition you are after:

  1. Link from the UC Library Homepage to the Subject Guides.
  2. Select a health related subject guide best suited to your topic, e.g. Nursing & Midwifery or Pharmacy.
  3. Select the 'Dictionaries & Encyclopedias' tab.
  4. Skim the page for an appropriate dictionary, either an online dictionary, or one in print.
  5. Click to access the online dictionary or write down the call number to find the print dictionary (check if the print dictionary is available first!
  6. Search or look up the definition.

If you could not find an appropriate dictionary, go back to the Subject Guides list and pick another health related subject guide.
