About

Overview

Designed for your beginning health care students, INTRODUCTION TO MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY 3E simplifies the process of learning hundreds of complex medical terms. The See and Say pronunciation system makes pronouncing unfamiliar terms easy. Because word parts are integral to learning medical terminology, mastery of these "building blocks" is emphasized in every chapter. Organized by body system, chapters begin with an overview of the structures and functions of that system so your students can relate these to the specialties, pathology, diagnostic, and treatment procedures that follow. A workbook offers word part and comprehensive medical terminology reviews, flashcards, and learning exercises in a variety of formats that require written answers.

Features and Benefits

  • Includes the StudyWare CD-Rom that is both PC and Mac compatible and all the vocabulary list words and their definitions have been newly recorded by a health care professional.
  • Includes the Simplified Syllabus, an alternative approach that allows you to focus on the 60 terms and 15 word parts presented at the beginning of each chapter when your students do not need to learn the full range of primary terms in the text, and also includes additional tools that support you if you want to teach this simplified syllabus.
  • Accompanying StudyWARETM CD-ROM offers your students additional practice, assessment and feedback through interactive quizzes and fun activities that correlate with each chapter in the book.
  • Includes a Sounds-Like Pronunciation System that is a proven method of pronunciation that simplifies saying the terms correctly, a Study Break which is a brief and amusing pause before your students go on to review important information in the chapter and Human Touch: Critical Thinking Exercise Scenarios that involve patients and pathology that applies chapter material to the real world.
  • Includes Word Parts Emphasized where word parts are highlighted in color and defined whenever a term made up of word parts is introduced, with the definition following in parentheses.
  • Includes Career Opportunities that stimulate your students' consideration of career ideas related to chapter content.
