Medical terminology


Welcome to our introductory course for medical terminology.

Medical terminology is the ‘standardised language of medicine’ which allows all medical professionals to understand each other and communicate effectively. A base level understanding is paramount for patient safety as it is a universal language that is succinct and helps avoid confusion.

Medical terminology may seem like a foreign language, but once you understand the basic word structure and the definitions of some common word elements, the meaning of thousands of medical terms can be easily unfolded. This course will help guide you through this process by introducing you to these key components and how they all fit together to in order to better understand the language of medical terminology.
