The program could also be attended by attorneys, court reporters, non-healthcare professionals, pre-med students, and other individuals who are interested in knowing more about their own health, as well as their family's health. There is a growing need for health literacy, especially for those who care for older adults. Students who have higher levels of terminology knowledge tend to excel in managing patient information and they are better able to communicate with patients.


This continuing education program consists of two interrelated parts:

  1. The medical terminology segment consists of the spelling, pronunciation, meaning, and use of terms utilized in the medical setting. It will cover prefix, suffix, and root words and the importance of how these words are used to learn and understand all medical terms. 

  2. The anatomy-physiology portion includes basic concepts in the structure and function of the human body. It is broken down into body systems 


This course brings medical language to life and helps you develop the understanding to communicate fluently in the healthcare setting. Terms and complex medical processes are accessible and easy to understand at all learning levels with an approach that explains terms in the context of anatomy and physiology, as well as how the body works in health and disease. This course is designed to reinforce your comprehension and help you establish a practical foundation for a successful career in healthcare.
