Medical Terminology

~2.00 hrs | Science

The world of medicine, like many other professions, has a language unto itself. For example, when doctors speak to each other, they use words like “polyarteritis” and “intramyocardial” instead of speaking what you might call plain English. However, these words are English, and in order to understand what you read in medical publications and have meaningful discussions with healthcare professionals, you need to understand this form of English, known as medical terminology.
