Medical terminology may seem like a foreign language because many of the terms are unfamiliar, seem strange, or do not make sense. However, to communicate in the medical world, you need a thorough under-standing of the language.
Most medical terms are based on word parts that already may be familiar. You may have heard words such as appendicitis , gastritis , and tonsillectomy or used them in the past. You may not realize how many medical terms you already know. Building on this foundation, learning new word parts will make medical terminology seem more logical.
This text and the accompanying materials simplify the process of learning medical terminology. Review the introductory sections so you are familiar with the organizational scheme of the textbook and CourseMate . Once you become comfortable with the materials, you will find yourself learning medical terms faster than you ever imagined possible.
