BIO 3896: Medical Terminology (2022-2023)

View all BIO classes

This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of basic medical terminology so that they can use this vocabulary in the health care setting. Medical terms associated with body systems, disease processes, laboratory tests, and clinical procedures commonly found in the health care setting will be explored. Rather than memorizing hundreds or thousands of words we will learn how to break apart a medical word into its parts (e.g. prefix, root, suffix). Students will read and analyze medical journal articles to practice utilizing medical terminology. Typically offered: Winter.
