Medical terminology is the specific language used by professionals in the medical industry and for success in this field, understanding and communicating in the language is critical. Medical Terminology 201 is an advanced course for those with some experience or training (Medical Terminology 101 is not required but recommended).
The course will focus on the medical terms and concepts used to understand anatomy. Lessons are organized by body system. Each lesson begins with structures and functions of a system followed by pathology, diagnostic, and procedural terminology. This easy-to-read, compact format of our online classroom makes for quick learning.
Understanding medical terminology is vital for entry in a wide range of medical professions including those entering the medical coding or medical billing fields, those looking to improve or expand job opportunities in any health-care related career, those who are seeking careers in the hospital, insurance companies or government agencies, or those in the legal profession needing to understand medical information for exchange and interpretation. If you are interested in pursuing a health and science career requiring the ability to communicate with physicians, dentists, or other medical professionals, this class will provide the necessary skills.
Are you considering pursuing a career in medical science? If so, it’s an absolute must that you have the ability to communicate with physicians, dentists or any other medical professionals.
If you’ve already gained a rudimentary knowledge of the healthcare language known as medical terminology, but it just wasn't enough, then Medical Terminology 201 will pick up where these other classes left off.
Keep in mind – this is an advanced course. While it’s not a pre-requisite, if your medical terminology skills are rusty (or even non-existent) then you might want to consider enrolling in our introductory course, Medical Terminology 101.
However, if you're confident that you've got what it takes to make it in today’s medical field, then the successful completion of this course is a pre-requisite!
Regardless of where you stand in the healthcare industry, you won’t get very far without a clear understanding of the language of medicine.
The primary focus of Medical Terminology 201 is to help you focus on the medical terms and concepts that are used to understand human anatomy.

Medical Terminology 201 is an ideal option for students with a basic understanding of medical terminology and works well in an online, self-paced environment.

There are a total of seven lessons, which are organized and divided by the various systems of the human body. Every lesson starts with the structures and functions of the system and further explores pathology, diagnostic and procedural terminology.
All-in-all, you benefit from an easy-to-read, compact format that makes for fast, effective learning that lasts.
If you're dedicated to setting yourself up in a career in the medical or scientific communities, and refuse to settle for anything less than the ability to communicate with others already in the field – doctors, dentists, healthcare administrators, etc.--then this is the class that will get you where you want to go.
