Course Description

Medical terminology is the study of the myriad of medical terms that make up the sometimes long and convoluted medical terms used in everyday medical practices and hospitals.  Medical terms are usually made from prefixes, suffixes, and root words, most of which have some origin in the Latin or Greek languages, although sometimes a word comes from German, French, or English origins.

This course will teach you the various medical terms and medical abbreviations that make up medical terminology.  There will be medical terms based on numbers, colors, and on words beginning with the letters "A" through "Z".  You'll find some lessons are very difficult because there are dozens of medical terms to memorize.  Others just have a few medical terms to memorize.

The best way to take this course is to learn the medical terms and transfer them to index cards cut in half with the medical term on one side and the meaning of the medical term on the other side.  You can play a game by guessing the medical term's meaning and putting those you get right in one pile and those you get wrong in another pile.  Eventually, all the medical terms will go into the pile of words you know and have memorized.

As part of the course, the etiology and the time when the word was first used will be a part of the lesson but it is not necessary to memorize those facts.  They are just included for your interest and to give you some idea of where and when the word was first used.
