Units of Study

Medical Terminology: A Word Association Approach 3 Course Bundle includes the following courses, below is a summary of each course: 

Course 1 - Certificate in Medical Terminology: A Word Association Approach Online Course

There are 12 units of study

Common Root and Musculoskeletal Terms

Welcome to the first lesson of medical terminology! We'll begin the course by exploring root terms, which represent the main meaning of a combined medical term. A combined medical term consists of a root, a prefix, and/or a suffix. As we progress through each lesson of this course, you'll see that we proceed by "body system," and in this first lesson, we'll go over root terms that are associated with the musculoskeletal system, so we'll be talking a lot about the muscles, bones, joints, and tendons of the body in this lesson.

Integumentary and Digestive Terms

In today's lesson, you'll learn a variety of terminology relating to the integumentary and digestive systems. The integumentary system includes the skin, connective tissues, and some loosely associated structures such as nails and teeth. When we discuss the digestive system, you'll learn medical terminology relating to the digestive tract from the mouth, to the pharynx, to the esophagus, and so on, all the way out to the exterior of the body.

Cardiovascular and Respiratory Terms

In this lesson, we'll go over terminology related to the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. The cardiovascular system includes the heart, arteries, veins, and blood, while the respiratory system includes the lungs and assorted chest structures.

Urinary and Reproductive Terms

Today's topic areas are the urinary and reproductive systems. When we go over the urinary system, you'll learn terminology related to the kidneys, bladder, urine, and even some chemistry terms. When we go over the reproductive system, you'll learn root terms that refer to both male and female anatomical structures.

Neurosensory Terms and Root-Term Review

In this lesson, we'll finish up our discussion about root terms. You'll learn root terms that are associated with the neurosensory system, including nerves, the eyes, ears, brain, and spinal cord. Then we'll begin doing something a little different—at the end of the lesson, we'll do a little review session to help you remember all of the root terms that you've learned up to this point.

Prefixes and Suffixes A through H

In today's lesson, you'll learn about prefixes and suffixes that are common in medicine and start with the letters A through H. Starting today, we won't be going through the word associations that we did in previous lessons. By now, you'll find that you can recognize many of these terms as they're used in our normal, everyday language.

Prefixes and Suffixes I through O

In this lesson, we'll continue to progress through the prefixes and suffixes commonly used in medical terminology. Our objective for today is to identify the common medical prefixes and suffixes that begin with the letters I through O.

Prefixes and Suffixes P through Z

Today, we'll complete our tour through the alphabetical listings of the most common prefixes and suffixes used in medical terminology by focusing on prefixes and suffixes that begin with the letters P through Z. You'll find that there are many more terms that medical professionals use less often, and you'll even discover that sometimes a root that you already know is used as a prefix or suffix.

Color Prefixes and Suffixes and Abbreviated Titles

In previous lessons, you learned about common prefixes and suffixes. In today's lesson, we'll study specific prefixes and suffixes that pertain to color. Color is used quite a bit in the medical field because it helps everyone to describe various signs and symptoms. In this lesson, we'll also go over medical abbreviations that are specific to the various occupations and titles of the medical industry. Your assignment in this lesson will change a little as your research becomes a bit more challenging.

Common Abbreviations A through R

The medical community uses an abundance of abbreviations. Some medical facilities don't allow them, but you should still learn the meanings of the most common abbreviations so you'll know them when you see them. For this lesson, we'll study the abbreviations that start with the letters A through R. Your assignment for this lesson will be a bit different—you're going to find words in a medical note that you can replace with the abbreviations that you learned in the lesson.

Common Abbreviations S through W and Specialized Abbreviations

In this lesson, we'll finish our study of medical abbreviations as we explore the abbreviations that begin with letters S through Z. We'll also go over specific abbreviations that refer to hospital areas, laboratory tests, chemistries, and medical symbols. In today's assignment, it's up to you to find the abbreviations that correctly relate to each sentence in a medical note.

Directional Terms and Word Combinations

Here in our final lesson, it's time to put everything you've learned together. We'll look at our roots, prefixes, and suffixes, and see how they create combined medical terms from body system to body system. You'll also learn some directional terms that are commonly used in medicine. You'll find that your assignment for this lesson provides you the opportunity to decipher a complete medical note.

Course 2 - Certificate in Medical Terminology II: A Focus on Human Disease Online Course

There are 12 units of study

The Cardiovascular System
We'll start off this course with medical terminology related to the cardiovascular system. We'll begin by reviewing the major functions and organs of the cardiovascular system, and you'll gain a solid grasp of the terminology related to this system's organs. We'll then move on to a discussion of terminology related to disorders, diagnoses, and treatments related to this essential organ system.

The Lymphatic System, Immunity, and Cancer
In this lesson, we'll go over medical terminology related to the lymphatic system, immunity, and cancer. We'll start out by covering the basic functions and organs of the lymphatic system, and you'll learn strategies your body uses to keep you well. We'll also discuss the relationship between the immune system and cancer. We'll go on to discuss terminology related to specific disorders, diagnostic procedures, and treatment of the organs of the lymphatic system, immunological disorders, and cancer.

The Respiratory System
In this lesson, you'll learn the names and functions of the organs of both the upper and lower tracts of the respiratory system. We'll talk about this organ system's crucial role in getting oxygen to your tissues and removing carbon dioxide from your body, and we'll review a few of its other functions as well. We'll then discuss terminology related to specific disorders of the respiratory system, diagnostic procedures, and treatment.

The Nervous System
In this lesson, we'll explore terminology related to the functions, structures, and disorders of the nervous system. You'll learn that this system contains two divisions: the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. We'll discuss terminology related to disorders of both these divisions of the nervous system, as well as diagnostic procedures and treatment.

The Endocrine System
The endocrine system consists of glands that secrete substances (called hormones) into the bloodstream. From there, hormones travel to target cells−cells that will be affected by particular hormones. Disorders of this system commonly occur and can cause people significant problems. In this lesson, we'll discuss terminology related to the glands and hormones of this system, some of its disorders, diagnostic procedures, and treatment.

The Skeletal System
The skeletal system plays a number of important roles in the function of the human body, including movement, protection, blood cell production, support, and mineral and fat storage. Its structures often experience injuries and disease. In this lesson, we'll go over terminology related to the skeletal system's structures, as well as disorders, diagnostic procedures, and treatment of the bones, joints, and spine.

The Muscular System
The muscular system consists of muscle tissue, the fascia that surrounds muscles, and the tendons that attach muscles to bones. With over 600 muscles in the human body, disorders of this organ system are fairly common. In this lesson, we'll discuss terminology related to problems with this organ system, diagnostic procedures, and several types of treatment.

The Integumentary System
The integumentary system includes the largest single organ in your body—your skin, as well as sebaceous and sweat glands, hair, and nails. People often suffer from disorders of this organ system, and in this lesson, we'll cover terminology related to a number of them. We'll discuss terminology related to disorders of both the skin and its accessory organs, as well as diagnostic procedures and treatment.

The Urinary System
One of your organ systems works hard to keep your blood from poisoning you by removing dangerous waste products and putting them into urine−the urinary system. This system contains just four different organs, but its proper function is essential to your health. In this lesson, we'll discuss medical terminology related to a number of disorders of the urinary system, their diagnoses, and treatment.

The Digestive System
The digestive system contains more organs that any other organ system. Some of those organs make up a passageway, called the alimentary canal, which allows food to pass from your mouth, down into your stomach, through your intestines, and then leave your body. Other organs, called accessory organs, secrete substances that help break down the food and liquids you ingest into molecules that your body can use. We'll cover terminology related to diseases of the digestive system's organs in this lesson, as well as terminology related to both diagnostic and treatment procedures.

The Male Reproductive System
The male reproductive system is made up of both external and internal reproductive organs. In this lesson, we'll briefly review the functions of the male reproductive system as well as the organs that make up this system. We'll then cover terminology related to disorders of both the external and internal male reproductive organs, diagnostic procedures, and treatment options.

The Female Reproductive System
We'll begin this lesson with a brief overview of the organs of the female reproductive systems and their functions. We'll also go over medical terminology related to disorders of the organs of this system, as well as disorders related to the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. We'll then discuss terminology related to diagnosing disorders of this system and a number of different treatments.

Medical Terminology: A Word Association Approach 3 Course Bundle includes the following courses, below is a summary of each course: 

Course 1 - Certificate in Medical Terminology: A Word Association Approach Online Course

There are 12 units of study

Common Root and Musculoskeletal Terms

Welcome to the first lesson of medical terminology! We'll begin the course by exploring root terms, which represent the main meaning of a combined medical term. A combined medical term consists of a root, a prefix, and/or a suffix. As we progress through each lesson of this course, you'll see that we proceed by "body system," and in this first lesson, we'll go over root terms that are associated with the musculoskeletal system, so we'll be talking a lot about the muscles, bones, joints, and tendons of the body in this lesson.

Integumentary and Digestive Terms

In today's lesson, you'll learn a variety of terminology relating to the integumentary and digestive systems. The integumentary system includes the skin, connective tissues, and some loosely associated structures such as nails and teeth. When we discuss the digestive system, you'll learn medical terminology relating to the digestive tract from the mouth, to the pharynx, to the esophagus, and so on, all the way out to the exterior of the body.

Cardiovascular and Respiratory Terms

In this lesson, we'll go over terminology related to the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. The cardiovascular system includes the heart, arteries, veins, and blood, while the respiratory system includes the lungs and assorted chest structures.

Urinary and Reproductive Terms

Today's topic areas are the urinary and reproductive systems. When we go over the urinary system, you'll learn terminology related to the kidneys, bladder, urine, and even some chemistry terms. When we go over the reproductive system, you'll learn root terms that refer to both male and female anatomical structures.

Neurosensory Terms and Root-Term Review

In this lesson, we'll finish up our discussion about root terms. You'll learn root terms that are associated with the neurosensory system, including nerves, the eyes, ears, brain, and spinal cord. Then we'll begin doing something a little different—at the end of the lesson, we'll do a little review session to help you remember all of the root terms that you've learned up to this point.

Prefixes and Suffixes A through H

In today's lesson, you'll learn about prefixes and suffixes that are common in medicine and start with the letters A through H. Starting today, we won't be going through the word associations that we did in previous lessons. By now, you'll find that you can recognize many of these terms as they're used in our normal, everyday language.

Prefixes and Suffixes I through O

In this lesson, we'll continue to progress through the prefixes and suffixes commonly used in medical terminology. Our objective for today is to identify the common medical prefixes and suffixes that begin with the letters I through O.

Prefixes and Suffixes P through Z

Today, we'll complete our tour through the alphabetical listings of the most common prefixes and suffixes used in medical terminology by focusing on prefixes and suffixes that begin with the letters P through Z. You'll find that there are many more terms that medical professionals use less often, and you'll even discover that sometimes a root that you already know is used as a prefix or suffix.

Color Prefixes and Suffixes and Abbreviated Titles

In previous lessons, you learned about common prefixes and suffixes. In today's lesson, we'll study specific prefixes and suffixes that pertain to color. Color is used quite a bit in the medical field because it helps everyone to describe various signs and symptoms. In this lesson, we'll also go over medical abbreviations that are specific to the various occupations and titles of the medical industry. Your assignment in this lesson will change a little as your research becomes a bit more challenging.

Common Abbreviations A through R

The medical community uses an abundance of abbreviations. Some medical facilities don't allow them, but you should still learn the meanings of the most common abbreviations so you'll know them when you see them. For this lesson, we'll study the abbreviations that start with the letters A through R. Your assignment for this lesson will be a bit different—you're going to find words in a medical note that you can replace with the abbreviations that you learned in the lesson.

Common Abbreviations S through W and Specialized Abbreviations

In this lesson, we'll finish our study of medical abbreviations as we explore the abbreviations that begin with letters S through Z. We'll also go over specific abbreviations that refer to hospital areas, laboratory tests, chemistries, and medical symbols. In today's assignment, it's up to you to find the abbreviations that correctly relate to each sentence in a medical note.

Directional Terms and Word Combinations

Here in our final lesson, it's time to put everything you've learned together. We'll look at our roots, prefixes, and suffixes, and see how they create combined medical terms from body system to body system. You'll also learn some directional terms that are commonly used in medicine. You'll find that your assignment for this lesson provides you the opportunity to decipher a complete medical note.

Course 2 - Certificate in Medical Terminology II: A Focus on Human Disease Online Course

There are 12 units of study

The Cardiovascular System
We'll start off this course with medical terminology related to the cardiovascular system. We'll begin by reviewing the major functions and organs of the cardiovascular system, and you'll gain a solid grasp of the terminology related to this system's organs. We'll then move on to a discussion of terminology related to disorders, diagnoses, and treatments related to this essential organ system.

The Lymphatic System, Immunity, and Cancer
In this lesson, we'll go over medical terminology related to the lymphatic system, immunity, and cancer. We'll start out by covering the basic functions and organs of the lymphatic system, and you'll learn strategies your body uses to keep you well. We'll also discuss the relationship between the immune system and cancer. We'll go on to discuss terminology related to specific disorders, diagnostic procedures, and treatment of the organs of the lymphatic system, immunological disorders, and cancer.

The Respiratory System
In this lesson, you'll learn the names and functions of the organs of both the upper and lower tracts of the respiratory system. We'll talk about this organ system's crucial role in getting oxygen to your tissues and removing carbon dioxide from your body, and we'll review a few of its other functions as well. We'll then discuss terminology related to specific disorders of the respiratory system, diagnostic procedures, and treatment.

The Nervous System
In this lesson, we'll explore terminology related to the functions, structures, and disorders of the nervous system. You'll learn that this system contains two divisions: the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. We'll discuss terminology related to disorders of both these divisions of the nervous system, as well as diagnostic procedures and treatment.

The Endocrine System
The endocrine system consists of glands that secrete substances (called hormones) into the bloodstream. From there, hormones travel to target cells−cells that will be affected by particular hormones. Disorders of this system commonly occur and can cause people significant problems. In this lesson, we'll discuss terminology related to the glands and hormones of this system, some of its disorders, diagnostic procedures, and treatment.

The Skeletal System
The skeletal system plays a number of important roles in the function of the human body, including movement, protection, blood cell production, support, and mineral and fat storage. Its structures often experience injuries and disease. In this lesson, we'll go over terminology related to the skeletal system's structures, as well as disorders, diagnostic procedures, and treatment of the bones, joints, and spine.

The Muscular System
The muscular system consists of muscle tissue, the fascia that surrounds muscles, and the tendons that attach muscles to bones. With over 600 muscles in the human body, disorders of this organ system are fairly common. In this lesson, we'll discuss terminology related to problems with this organ system, diagnostic procedures, and several types of treatment.

The Integumentary System
The integumentary system includes the largest single organ in your body—your skin, as well as sebaceous and sweat glands, hair, and nails. People often suffer from disorders of this organ system, and in this lesson, we'll cover terminology related to a number of them. We'll discuss terminology related to disorders of both the skin and its accessory organs, as well as diagnostic procedures and treatment.

The Urinary System
One of your organ systems works hard to keep your blood from poisoning you by removing dangerous waste products and putting them into urine−the urinary system. This system contains just four different organs, but its proper function is essential to your health. In this lesson, we'll discuss medical terminology related to a number of disorders of the urinary system, their diagnoses, and treatment.

The Digestive System
The digestive system contains more organs that any other organ system. Some of those organs make up a passageway, called the alimentary canal, which allows food to pass from your mouth, down into your stomach, through your intestines, and then leave your body. Other organs, called accessory organs, secrete substances that help break down the food and liquids you ingest into molecules that your body can use. We'll cover terminology related to diseases of the digestive system's organs in this lesson, as well as terminology related to both diagnostic and treatment procedures.

The Male Reproductive System
The male reproductive system is made up of both external and internal reproductive organs. In this lesson, we'll briefly review the functions of the male reproductive system as well as the organs that make up this system. We'll then cover terminology related to disorders of both the external and internal male reproductive organs, diagnostic procedures, and treatment options.

The Female Reproductive System
We'll begin this lesson with a brief overview of the organs of the female reproductive systems and their functions. We'll also go over medical terminology related to disorders of the organs of this system, as well as disorders related to the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. We'll then discuss terminology related to diagnosing disorders of this system and a number of different treatments.
