HCOA: Health Care Office Administration Program: Other Citation Styles

This Research Guide will help students in the HCOA program find information about diseases, medical procedures, human anatomy, and the management of health information.

Other Citation Styles

Writing in the health sciences may require you to use citation methods other than the familiar APA or MLA styles.


For example, you may be asked to use the American Medical Association (AMA) Manual of Style. The Library owns the latest version (11th edition), which is located in the Reference section at call number R 119 .A533 2020.
