What is Advanced Medical Terminology?

Advanced Medical Terminology builds on the knowledge gained in our popular Introduction to Medical Terminology. In five, three-hour sessions, students learn the terminology associated with the eight major body systems. Discussions focus on the treatment and etiology of the disease conditions related to each system as well as the associated clinical procedures and laboratory tests. Lecture is supplemented with audiovisuals, case studies, and learner participation.

Who in Your Organization Will Benefit?

Your non-medical employees who review and transcribe clinical data will become an integral part of the clinical research team. Employees spend more time comprehending clinical data than they do deciphering or misinterpreting clinical data.

  • Accurate clinical data
  • Drugs get to market faster
