When looking to break into the healthcare industry, one of the most difficult parts of the learning curve is understanding all of the language within the field. In this course, you will not only learn and understand the medical terms themselves, but also their application, making you a valuable asset to a healthcare team. You'll start by learning the origins of medical words and how to recognize prefixes and suffixes used in medical terminology. Then you'll learn about the body as a whole and how to differentiate cells, tissues, organs, systems, and cavities. Next, you'll learn to define and describe the function of each system of the human body. This knowledge will help you take the next step in your medical career or education.
What sets this course apart from other courses? We’ve partnered with the Stanford Research Institute to integrate new tech into your course. You’ll interact with voice analysis software that will help you practice the pronunciation of terms. What’s more, the software will provide you with a recording and confidence score, to let you know how close or far you are from saying the terms correctly.
