What is Advanced Medical Terminology?
Advanced Medical Terminology is an instructor-led course. It builds on knowledge typically gained through work experience or by taking one of our Medical Terminology Classes. 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.
