Module Introduction banner.jpg

Welcome to Medical Terminology. This is the beginning of a whole new world and culture. Aren't you excited? You have chosen to learn a whole new language!  

Let's imagine that you are visiting a foreign country with a different language. What's the best way to learn a new language?

Immerse yourself in it!

The more you are exposed to it, the more effective you will become at speaking this new language. The more you practice, the more fluent you will become. A significant part of understanding a new language is learning the rules of the language. That is where our journey begins; you must learn the word building rules and how to apply them.


Course Outcomes:

  • Diagram medical terms, labeling the word parts.
  • Define both medical terms and abbreviations related to all body systems.
    • Note: Each Module builds upon the previous Module. When you have completed all Modules in all Credit Units, you will be able to define medical terms and abbreviations for many of the body systems. At the end of each Credit Unit, there will be a comprehensive review in the form of a Competency Assessment that prepares you for each Credit Unit Assessment. You will have unlimited attempts to complete this Competency Assessment.
