This course will provide students with a foundation to recognize medical terms using the four word part approach (prefix, word root, suffix, combining vowel). This will prepare the student to better understand and master the terminology related to health care delivery. Emphasis will be placed on improving written and oral communication skills pertaining to medical terminology. The student will experience real life applications of medical terminology through the use of pathology, and history and physical forms from actual hospital records as well as television medical dramas and movies. A working knowledge of medical terminology is desirable for anyone entering one of the health science fields.
