Medical Terminology & Specialties I

Medical interpreters must build an extensive vocabulary of all the medical terms encountered from the time patients register in a health care facility to the moment they are discharged. Receive a thorough grounding in basic medical terminology through a structured study of root words, prefixes, and suffixes that allows you to decode the meaning of words when the vocabulary is unknown. Anatomy, physiology, common health problems, and medical procedures will be covered in the following human body systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, digestive, and endocrine. Students must also pay a one-time $155 book fee upon entry of first course in the program. Book fee includes workbook and all learning materials needed for all four courses in the certificate program.

Prerequisite: Introduction to Medical Interpreting. Must meet language proficiency requirements.
