Medical Terminology & Body Systems - April 3 - June 5, 2013: UMHS Interpreter Services.

  community member   < less

Mastering complex medical terms can be hard. UMHS Interpreter Services' Medical Terminology and Body Systems course makes it easier.
This 40-hour course is ideal for medical interpreters, medical professionals, and anyone interested in learning the basics of medical science. The course teaches the Word Building Technique, which helps you decipher medical terms by dividing them into three basic parts: the prefix, root and suffix. By learning common prefixes, suffixes, and root words, you can easily make sense of even the most complex terms. It's a quick, efficient and amazingly easy way to learn medical terminology.
Medical Terminology and Body Systems is open to everyone. It is language neutral, and all materials and instructions are presented in English. If you're a medical interpreter, the course is an ideal way to prepare for the National Certification exam and/ or to earn continuing education hours.
