​This is an introductory course in medical terminology studying the principles of medical word building to help students develop a foundation of working medical vocabulary on which they can build as they pursue their medical studies. The course ensures a thorough grounding in basic medical terms through the study of root words, prefixes, and suffixes. Since medical terminology is closely related to the structure (anatomy) and systems (physiology) of the human body, this course also provides the students with an opportunity to explore some of the body systems and study terms used in anatomy, physiology, clinical procedures, and pathology pertaining to these systems. Practical applications present terms as they appear in medical reports and records.  ​
