Medical Terminology is the study of the principles of medical word building using root words, prefixes, and suffixes with emphasis on spelling, pronunciation, and definitions.  The course introduces the student to the specialized language of the medical profession, builds a background vocabulary in this area, and provides a solid foundation for understanding and using medical terms.
