This course is a self-directed study unit designed to ensure mastery of the medical language. This course enables learners to use and understand the medical terminology common to most allied health personnel. This is accomplished by categorizing related terms into easily learned units and introducing students to the structure of medical language. By learning prefixes, suffixes, and word roots, learners will be able to build, use, and spell medical words that relate to body systems and body organization. Common abbreviations and symbols are also included. The completion of this course will equip students with an understanding of the terms included in the course text and the basis for recognizing and understanding new and unfamiliar terms introduced in other Paramedicine courses and used in clinical and practical settings.
