About This Course

This is a complete and self-contained course in modern medical terminology. It is suitable for all students of the health occupations who will have a need to communicate with physicians, dentists, and other medical professionals. Little prior knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology is required.

The actual content of the study units is presented in a "flash card" format. Some of the flash cards present factual material, while others test your recall of the facts.

You can begin the course at your own convenience, and study at your own pace. You are, however, solely accountable for your own standard of achievement.
