How to remember the most difficult words to spell in Hospital Medicine?

One of the medical students tweeted with a question in Twitter about the most difficult words to spell in medicine. It was interesting. I thought we can add all the difficult words to spell in Hospital Medicine so that documentation looks better.

I tried to make it easy to remember the spelling by breaking the words. Remember the bolded colorful part of the word and hopefully, it will help to remember the spellings easily the next time we dictate and mic does not transcribe correctly.
