BENITEZ GENER, Aurora et al. Glossary of pharmacological terms. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.5, pp. 93-98. ISSN 1561-3194.
Aimed at providing medical students and health professionals information about the most used medications showing their names in Spanish and English as well as the correct pronunciation, indications and treatment, a glossary of pharmacological terms was made. This compiles 142 medications in alphabetical order having a translation into Spanish of their corresponding categories and applications. Some of the medications compiled in this pamphlet were taught in the English lessons with medical purposes in the 4th academic year of the medical major during this course, being of great interest and usefulness for the future health professionals. Concluding that this glossary can be a tool of reference for medical students and for all health personnel or any other people interested in the topic, including professors of English in the institution.
