Students build a strong foundation through the study of prefixes, suffixes, and root words and study the structure and origin of common medical terms with a focus on correct pronunciation, spelling, and application of medical terms. Students will take a systematic approach to the systems of the body by learning the basic structure and function of the system as well as medical terms related to pathology, diagnosis, clinical procedures, pharmacology, and abbreviations specific to that system. Students will learn to communicate in medical language and interpret complex medical communications into everyday language.
