Medical Terminology & Specialties II

Study the elements of medical word building to develop the extensive vocabulary medical interpreters use within specialty settings. Receive a thorough grounding on basic medical terminology through a study of root words, prefixes, and suffixes that allows you to decode the meaning of words when the vocabulary is unknown. Anatomy and physiology, most common health problems, and medical procedures will be covered in the following areas: respiratory, reproductive, urinary, nervous, cardiovascular, lymphatic, and mental health. Students must also pay for 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: Medical Terminology & Specialties I. Must meet language proficiency requirements.
