Medical Terminology Class

Grasping medical terminology starts with knowing the body’s systems, recognizing medical root words commonly used, understanding the prefixes and suffixes of commonly used medical terms, and learning those pesky hard-to-spell medical words. Your body is made up of many systems, each having their own vital parts that work together. This  list represents your bodily systems and some specific parts that comprise them: Skeletal (bones & tendons), Muscular (muscles & tendons), Integumentary (skin & glands in skin), Sensory (eyes), Cardiovascular (heart), Lymphatic (spleen & lymph nodes), Respiratory (nose & lungs), Gastrointestinal (esophagus & liver), Endocrine (hormones & thyroid), Nervous (brain & spinal cord), Urinary (kidneys & bladder), and Reproductive (ovaries & prostate in males) just to name a few examples of each.

Then we cover common medical root words. The root of     a word is its main part and core meaning. These common medical root words give you a general idea of what you’re dealing with or specify a body part.

Example: Abdomin/o: Abdomen

This class is offered to help you to continue into your medical career or just being able to talk to your doctor in a general setting
