I think there should be more letters in the fill in part. Not "pulm" but "pulmono" or not "rad" but "radio" and so on. Kinda annoying to start to type a word and you type just one or two letters too many and have to delete those to start on the next one. Only missed the feet.

yes, it took so many time to look and figure out what you should excatly type in. And confusing sometimes it s more than you think and sometimes it is less. Found it quite annoying

Atleast keep it consistent please. Like everything before -logy or before -ology, cause it varied a lot as to how much of the word before -ology you had to type.

Pretty easy but I used to work in a hospital. Took me a minute to remember pulmonology and rheumatology.

Pretty easy for me, too, but my husband's a nurse. My mother was a nurse. My daughter's a nurse. My daughter-in-law's a nurse. My nephew's girlfriend is a nurse. I worked in a nursing home during college. I went to a year of nursing school before changing majors. And I've used all of these except geriatrics, hematology, and psychiatry. (All true statements.)

Arthrology is the study of joints. Rhuematology is the study of Rhuematism. Good Quiz!

BlackLab is correct. There is so much more to Rheumatology than just joints.

Arthrology is the study that includes orthopedics and rheumatology, among other things. Rheumatology covers joints, muscles, and ligaments, so the clue is correct as is.

Damn English spellings! I didn't know there was a second L in ophthalmology. And can't believe I missed pathology! I tried bacteriology and even epidemiology but forgot the obvious.

I didn't realise you Americans didn't spell ophthalmology without the second l. Missing vowels off diphthongs I can just about cope with but why miss out a consonant?

I tried "Germology" lol. @nanook, Americans who know how to spell ophthalmology do spell it with the second 'L'.

Rheumatology includes joints, but also includes muscles and tissues involved in rheumatism. Better = Joints and Muscles. Joints themselves are orthopedic. Joints and surrounding muscles are rheumatology. It's a difference of skeletal and musculoskeletal.

Joints themselves are also included under rheumatology for nonsurgical treatments, such as for arthritis or gout. Orthopedics deals with surgical treatments - replacing hips and knees, setting broken bones, etc.

Pathology is more like the diagnosis of disease. A pathologist does a lot of lab work. As someone who is considering specializing in pathology, "disease" in and of itself did not scream pathologist.

I tried epidemiology first, but when it didn't work I put path. I guess epidem would be the study of disease affecting populations, but it is still the study of disease. I suppose it is not a medical specialty though, more of a public health specialty.

well the -laryng- gives a big clue. And looked it up it is often (I dont know it is the more official one, but it came first and gave your spelling as an alternative option) spelled as Otorhinolaryngology, and in that spelling, rhino is easily recognosable aswell. So you see throat and nose. (oto apparently stands for ear, but personally I wouldnt have know the latin word for ear. weirdly, one of the few common bodyparts I would not have readily known the name for)
