Overview

The third edition of MEDICAL LANGUAGE: FOCUS ON TERMINOLOGY emphasizes word parts and word-building in its introduction to the principles of anatomy and physiology. Focusing on terminology, it provides just enough content on the anatomy of each body system to help students understand related disease, diagnostic, and surgical terms. Students receive the tools to analyze and define medical terms, as well as techniques to build medical terms from roots, prefixes, and suffixes. Available with MindTap® Basic Health Sciences, an innovative digital learning solution.
