Course Description:
Acellus Medical Terminology provides general study skills and a firm foundation for students preparing for postsecondary education to pursue a career in the medical field. Anatomical instruction is coupled with the investigation of key related terminology not only dealing with what but also why and how allowing students apply the information. Specifically, students explore the structures, functions, and terms related to disease and the bodily systems, including the skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, nervous, integumentary, endocrine, and reproductive systems. Students learn about specific health care professions and the unique role each plays. Through the study of this material students learn effective deciphering skills enabling them to decode medical terminology they have seen and terminology to which they are yet to be exposed. Medical Terminology is A-G Approved through the University of California.
