Summary

If you are medical technical user who is frustrated with spell checkers that default to American, seek no further.

This medical dictionary is a combination of a regular dictionary, a pharmacopoeia and a medical word list. While the file uses British condition and procedure spellings (e.g. colourblindness) it is specifically tuned for drugs that have been approved by Health Canada (e.g. Gravol, Urispas, Dabigatran etc.). Some Australian and UK specific drugs and spellings are present as well (e.g. Paracetamol, Pethidine etc.) to make it more generally useful.
