Clinical Skills I: Diseases & Specialists Project

Use Magill's Medical Guide to look up the diseases you were assigned or that you selected. Each entry should contain a definition of the disease and the name(s) of the medical specialties that apply.

Use the Table of Contents to find the disease you need information on, including definition, name of specialists, and related fields.

Remember to use its ISBN to generate an automatic APA reference in NoodleTools [link to NoodleTools / link to NoodleTools Guide].

See also the Disease Research Box on the Research page in the Health Sciences Guide. 

Use Google for finding directory (doctors by specialty) information for your local medical facilities.

  • Search Google for the name of each of your local medical facilities and add in a keyword like doctors or specialists.
  • Once you find the webpage that allows you to find doctors by specialty, that is the webpage you will want to reference for that hospital or clinic.
  • APA References for these pages…
    • You only need one reference for each hospital or clinic.
    • All APA references work like this: Author. Date. Title. Access.
      • Authors for these search pages are likely going to be agency or group authors (meaning, the name of the hospital or clinic).
      • The date of publication is likely to be at the very bottom of the page. If you can’t find anything, use the abbreviation n.d. for “no date.”
      • The title of the web page is likely to be the name of the search. In the past we have seen “Doctor search” as the title fairly frequently.
      • The access point will be the url of the search page. If your instructor clicks on the url, they should go right to the page that they can search for a doctor by specialty at the clinic/hospital.
    • See guide at top of this box for more information on citing these web directory pages.
