Medical Terminology Syllabus


Medical Terminology is a course which is all about medical words and their definitions. The official course description from the University of North Texas Health Science course guide is as follows:

A course designed to develop a working knowledge of the language of medicine. Students acquire word-building skills by learning prefixes, suffixes, roots, and abbreviations. By relating terms to body systems, students identify proper use of words in a medical environment. Knowledge of medical terminology enhances the student’s ability to successfully secure employment or pursue advanced education in health care.
