Believe it or not – updated after all these years to work with iOS 11!
Eponyms brings a short description of about 1800 common and obscure medical eponyms (e.g., Rovsing's sign, Virchow's node) to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. A perfect tool to quickly look up the meaning of any eponym.
It uses the beautiful eponym database from Andrew J. Yee (http://www.eponyms.net/).
• About 1800 eponyms
• Full text search
• Browse by any of the 26 categories
• Star eponyms to keep track of the eponyms you tend to forget or which you know are favorites of your professor
• List of recently accessed eponyms
• Quick and easy learn mode
## Learn Mode
The learn mode allows you to:
• swipe to the left to show a random eponym but not its title
• swipe to the right to show a random eponym title but not its text
• pull down to reveal the hidden info
Learn mode displays eponyms from the category you're currently visiting. This means you can either learn eponyms from a given category, only the ones that you've starred or simply all of them.
This is the free student version. Please only download the free version while you (still) are a student. Look for the regular version if you're a professional now.
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.
• Now in shiny 64-bit and able to accommodate all device screen sizes
• Added a handful of eponyms
Ratings and Reviews
Glad it's been updated!
I've been using this app for many years. It's the easiest way to reference a lot of things. For example I use it frequently to recall named fractures like Galeazzi, Maisonneuve and Monteggia. I'm so glad it's been updated so it will work on the new iOS.
Re depression, bipolar and coccidiowhatever
This is a great little app. It is a useful but very limited type of medical dictionary, just like an app that listed only "syndromes" and their definitions would be, and it doesn't pretend to be anything more than that. It's fun just to read down the list for personal education or for prep for a board exam. Mine hasn't crashed (iPhone 3GS), no problems to report. I would suggest that users who can't find "depression" or coccidiowhatever refer to a regular dictionary first so they know what an eponym is, then a medical dictionary for a definition of the non-eponymous term in question.
Fantastic!! I couldn't ask for a better App of Eponyms.I even love the fact how everything is broken down into categories of body systems. Sure it doesn't have everything out there, it's not a Harrison or anything, but definitely good when you need to quickly look up something. Could be updated from time to time but it's still good for m.. As for anyone who disagrees, this App like any other one is not supposed to have everything out there and def not to do our job, that's why we went to school for.
