Summary

For short courses (e.g., one-hour courses) in medical terminology.

A fun, accessible approach to medical terminology
An introductory-level “essentials” text, Medical Terminology: Get Connected! prepares students to make connections — whether it’s connecting word parts to form medical terms, learning connections within body systems, or communicating with colleagues and patients. Unlike other medical terminology resources, this text presents terms by medical specialty, rather than organ systems, giving it practical use. The fully updated 3rd edition has more engaging practice exercises, more robust visuals, and more detail on the healthcare practitioners who use medical terminology.

Also available 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 Medical Terminology, students build a solid foundation of medical language through interactive games, Dynamic Study Modules, and Guided Lectures.

You are purchasing a standalone product; MyLab Medical Terminology does not come packaged with this content.

Author Biography

Suzanne S. Frucht is an associate professor emeritus of anatomy and 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 from NWMSU, and a PhD in molecular biology and biochemistry from the University of Missouri–Kansas City.

For 14 years Dr. Frucht worked full time as a physical therapist in various healthcare 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. Dr. Frucht has 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.

Since retiring from teaching in 2008, she continues to be active in student learning through teaching medical terminology as an online course and writing medical terminology texts and anatomy and physiology laboratory manuals.
