Description

Medical Terminology for International Students aims to assist your learning and retention by focusing on:

• Presentation and practice of medical terms in manageable semantic groups per unit.
• Etymology of the terms (Greek and Latin derivation).
• Learning of lay equivalents of medical terms to enhance communication of medical information to patients.
• Associating medical terms to General English words; for example, “abduction of a limb” can be more easily understood if compared with a person’s abduction.
• Comparative presentation of terms in different organ contexts; for example, the “fornix” of the brain, and the “fornix” of the vagina.
• Pronunciation patterns of medical terms, with audio files.
• Explanation of the spelling of easily confused terms or word parts based on etymology, e.g. “-cleisis” (from Greek: to occlude) vs “-clysis” (from Greek: to wash out).
• Specially designed tasks that reflect the above instructional/learning methodology.
• Review units to consolidate learning and retention or/and self-assess your progress.
Each unit:

• Includes short, focused texts and audio/video material on anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology to present terminology in context.
• Provides ample practice with exercises of various formats to allow for variety and creativity.
• Features a “whole-unit exercises” section, including purposefully designed tasks based on selected published medical case reports.
• Includes a complete terminology list for easy access and review.
• Provides opportunities for pair and small-group work promoting collaborative learning.
