Summary

Using Medical Terminology, 2eis written to teach the language of medicine in an engaging and meaningful way by chunking information into manageable blocks of text and immersing learners into the language of medicine. By using medical terminology in context, students will be prepared to enter the workforce. NEW TO THE SECOND EDITION The number of exercises has expanded greatly, providing more opportunity to practice and review. The design for the second edition has been improved to make the text more appealing and much easier to use. The overall writing has been made even more student-friendly to help comprehension of medical terms without getting lost in scientific writing. The art program has been improved so that figure labels are less cluttered and include only those medical terms introduced in the chapter. The number of photographs has also increased significantly. Two new chapters, Oncology and Gerontology, have been included. In addition, former chapters 5 and 6, Skeletal System and Articulations, have been combined into one cohesive chapter, Skeletal System: Bones and Joints.
