MED 106 - Medical Terminology

1 credit
A study of the language of medicine. Medical terminology will be presented through a study of the progress of word building using medical root words, combining forms, prefixes and suffixes. The presentation of medical language in this course will later serve as a foundation for students interested in a career in many different health-related fields, such as nursing, radiology, physical therapy, dentistry, etc. This course will provide a framework by introducing the key elements in the formation, as well as the modification of medical terms which can then be applied to specific body systems. [FALL/SUMMER] One hour lecture per week.
