A Medical Crossword Puzzle

Earlier this year, AΩA member Dr. Peter Koetters proposed a crossword puzzle for members. He wrote us, "I think it might be fun to construct a puzzle designed to be solved by other physicians. In fact, it opens up a whole host of terminology and thematic ideas that are otherwise taboo in the world of puzzlemaking for the general public."

We were intrigued and asked him to send us a sample. A number of editorial board members who are crossword fans tried it out and declared it satisfactory. We present it here for your enjoyment. Dr. Koetters is a pediatrician in Pasadena, California. His puzzles have been published in the Los Angeles Times.

To solve the puzzle, download and launch it using Across Lite software (link below).
