Word of the Day – Polymathy

Blog-what-is-medical-terminologyToday’s word is polymathy.  It refers to having encyclopedic knowledge.  Sometimes, I just don’t need the medical jargon.  Occasionally, I don’t want to know things like free radicals, the number of repeats, whether it’s recessive or dominant and autosomes.  It is enough for me to know that I have a progressive condition called “Ataxia”.
