MedCertify - Medical Terminology

Print Version

As consumers of medical services we hear medical terms in our doctor's office, read about health issues in the newspaper; and make daily decisions about our own health care and the health care of our families. Working in a medical setting you will be exposed to and use these words even more everyday.

Terms such as arthritis, electrocardiogram, hepatitis, and anemia describe conditions and tests that are familiar. Other medical words are more complicated, but as you work through this course you will begin to understand them even if you have never studied biology or science.

This course helps you learn the meaning of the words their component parts and the individual parts of medical terms and the medical language. You will learn about the "root" of words, the "suffixes" and the all important "joining vowel".
