Summary

The proven guide to learning medical vocabulary–now offering even more opportunities to learn, practice, and connect up-to-date vocabulary with real healthcare clients and careers.

 

This comprehensive, proven text offers a logical, simple system for learning medical vocabulary primarily by building terms from word parts. Medical Terminology for Health Care Professionals, 8/e first introduces medical terminology and its essential suffixes and prefixes; then guides students logically through each key body system, working from the outside in, and from simple systems to complex. Additional specialty chapters cover oncology, radiology/nuclear medicine, and more; this edition's mental health chapter is fully revised for DSM-5, published May 2013. Every chapter is built around a color-coded word list showing how word parts are built, pronounced, and defined. Most pages also contain vibrant images, including anatomically precise drawings, authentic medical photos, and engaging labeling activities. Updated throughout, this Eighth Edition’s new features include: Combining Forms tables with meanings; streamlined and improved discussions of anatomy; Rule Reminders; integrated Study and Review Exercise sections throughout each system chapter; new case study vignettes; Practical Application Exercises using modern EHR records; and many new images.

  • Innovative pedagogy, including extensive opportunities to deepen understanding through practice (both print and online): Provides everything from EHR-based application exercises to pronunciation guides and Spanish-language translators
  • Broad coverage that goes far beyond many medical terminology books: Includes coverage of topics ranging from cancer to mental illness, anatomy and physiology to lifespan considerations, thereby preparing students to enter a wider spectrum of careers
