HLTH-1003Medical Terminology

This course will use a scaffolding approach to carefully sequence learning from simple to complex. This course will provide an introduction to the technical language of medical science through the study of terminology specific to anatomy and physiology, pathology, diagnostic and therapeutic services. Each chapter will consist of small learning segments (concepts, terms, illustrations and abbreviations) for the anatomy and physiology, pathology and procedures for a body system. Exercises will reinforce and assess students understanding and retention of material. Students will be exposed to terminology needed to correctly code in ICD10/CA and CCI.
