    M.D - Doctor of Medicine, meaning "Teacher of Medicine". For reference check it at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medical_doctor

    D.O. - Doctor of Osteopathy. You can find more information at: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/e...cle/002020.htm

    C.N.M. - Certified Nurse-Midwife http://www.medterms.com/script/main/...ticlekey=40419

    L.M. - Please check this list of abbreviations and acronyms: http://www.abbreviations.com/abbreviations/LM/1 or
    http://acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/lm
    (I'm not very familiar with this one).

    Hosp. Admin. - I guess this one is an easy one: "Hospital Administration".

    I hope it helps you.

    M.D. = Médico. La expresión literal "Doctor en Medicina" corresponde al médico que haya realizado un doctorado, no solamente la licenciatura.
    D.O. = Osteópata. La expresión literal "Doctor en Osteopatía" corresponde a quien haya realizado un doctorado.
    L.M. = Partero(a), o Licenciada en Partos.
    Hosp. Adm. = Personal administrativo del hospital

    Hi gentle. "Obstetras" are doctors(Obstetrician) They study Medicine and then they are specialized in Obsterics and Ginecology . On the other hand"Obstericas" are nurses specialized on childbirth. They are also called " parteras" or "obstetriz".

    It's good to give credit when credit is due! You are absolutely right! I've done some research and found that it seems to be mostly used in Argentina (obstétricas). I was used to call them more "parteras" or "matronas".
