The Language of Medicine, 8th Edition, shows you how to analyze and understand the meanings of medical terms in a way that makes sense-by breaking terms down into smaller word parts and clearly explaining them in relation to human anatomy, physiology, and pathology. Extensive hands-on practice, repetition, and case studies let you learn by doing-writing terms, labeling diagrams, and completing comprehensive, practical exercises.
