An immersive deep-dive into medical terminology
Medical Language: Immerse Yourself
is grounded in immersive language learning. Rather than memorizing vocabulary, students experience the sights and sounds of health care as they listen, speak, write, watch, examine, and think. A greater quantity and variety of exercises than any other text maximize opportunities to reinforce learning. The 5th edition retains its organization by medical specialty — the way medicine is practiced in the real world. New to the 5th edition is a reorganization into 15 chapters, perfect for a 16-week course, and into five sections correlated with learning outcomes. Each section ends with new Practice Laps evaluating student competency and underscoring learning goals.

Personalize learning with MyLab Medical Terminology
By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student. With MyLab Medical Terminology, students build a solid foundation of medical language through interactive games, Dynamic Study Modules, and narrated lectures.

She was instrumental in gaining initial accreditation for the college’s medical assisting program. Susan co-developed The SUM Program for Medical Transcription Training and reference books for the Health Professions Institute, and developed the curricula for the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs for the International Institute of Original Medicine. She has been a guest speaker at national seminars on accreditation of utilization management programs, medical transcription teacher training, and health information management certification examination review.

Susan is also the author of the soon-to-be-released Understanding Pharmacology for Health Professionals, 6th Edition (Pearson, 2021) and more than 40 articles published in medical transcription and health information management journals. With physician coauthors, she has written three nationally funded grants and two chapters in physicians’ anesthesiology and ENT textbooks. She has also coauthored numerous abstracts and articles published in nationally known medical journals, and most recently was the editor for an opinion column that appeared in the J ournal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
