Summary

A fun, accessible way to connect with medical terminology

Successful healthcare professionals make connections every day—whether it is connecting word parts to make medical terms, recognizing the interconnectedness of body structures and systems, or communicating with colleagues and patients. Medical Terminology: Get Connected! prepares readers to make these connections. Designed to be fun, accessible, and eye-catching, its powerful approach guides students step-by-step through mastering relevant word parts, understanding word roots, and word assembly. To help students learn meanings, correct spelling, pronunciation, and other components of each term, the book contains numerous exercises, tips, and colorful figures. As they practice and apply what they read, students will learn to build, translate, and link medical terms with confidence.

Author Biography

Suzanne S. Frucht was an Associate Professor of Physiology at Northwest Missouri State University (NWMSU). She holds baccalaureate degrees in biological sciences and physical therapy from Indiana University, an MS in biological sciences at NWMSU, and a PhD in molecular biology and biochemistry from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. For 14 years she worked full-time as a physical therapist in various health care settings, including acute care hospitals, extended care facilities, and home health. Based on her educational and clinical experience she was invited to teach medical terminology part time in 1988 and became a full time faculty member three years later as she discovered her love for the challenge of teaching. Before retiring in 2008, she taught a variety of courses including medical terminology, human anatomy, human physiology, and animal anatomy and physiology. She received the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2003.
