Medical Terminology: A Word Association Approach (Ed2Go)

This course teaches medical terminology from an anatomical approach where root terms are divided by each body system. You'll look at each root term, its origin, a combined form, and an example of non-medical everyday usage.

Word Associations are provided as a learning tool. Unusual and interesting information is provided in regards to each term. Root terms are combined with prefixes and suffixes as your learning will culminate in the interpretation of several paragraphs of medical notes. If you've ever had trouble memorizing medical terms, this course (and approach) is for you!
