Online Medical Terminology Course

For those entering the medical field, developing a working knowledge of medical terminology can be a daunting task. Des Moines University provides this short introductory course, which allows the user to develop a basic understanding of the origin and composition of medical terms. The course is divided into thirteen sections based on the different systems of the body (circulatory, nervous, digestive, respiratory, urinary, reproductive and musculoskeletal) and also defines words pertaining to cancer and medication. The site supplies not only the definitions of three hundred terms, but the skills to evaluate and understand new terms as well. This is an excellent resource for medical administrative staff, assistants, transcriptionists and anyone else entering the medical field with little or no previous experience in medical terminology.
