At times it may seem that healthcare professionals speak a different language entirely. At CMMC, care providers do their best to speak simply and clearly about medical issues, but the use of healthcare terminology is sometimes unavoidable.

The glossaries in the navigation bar on the left of this page have been compiled to help healthcare consumers better understand some of the terms that they may encounter as they seek care at CMMC or at any hospital.
