Course Description

This comprehensive medical terminology combination course covers both courses: Medical Terminology 101 and 201. We'll start with the very basics of medical terminology, reviewing word roots, prefixes, and suffixes that make up medical words. We'll then move on to each body system where we'll work on recognizing and defining their related medical terms. This comprehensive review of medical terminology will not only benefit those new to medical terms used in medicine today, but also act as a refresher for those already experienced in medical terminology. So join us today!
