This online Medical Terminology course teaches hundreds of medical terms covering body parts, symptoms, conditions, treatments and procedures. You also learn how medical terms are formed and pronounced, and how they translate into everyday English.
Medical terminology is essential to understanding healthcare. Using an agreed set of medical terms allows healthcare students and professionals to use language that will be understood by other professionals wherever it is said or written.
Medical terminology can seem like another language. However, it has a regular structure that can be learnt quickly. In essence, you need to understand the roots of medical terms – very often derived from old English, Latin or Greek – and the prefixes and suffixes which combine with the roots to give specific meanings.
SLC’s Medical Terminology course helps you understand how medical terminology works and introduces you to medical terms covering every part of the body, from the parietal bone to the sacrum to the hallux.
