Medical Terminology: A Contextual Approach

Teaches students how to build medical terms using word parts, combining forms, prefixes, and suffixes. Students learn how to translate terms into their common meanings and common meanings into medical terms. Terminology is introduced by body system, system function, and organ structure and is applied by associating medical terms with basic physiologic and physiologic scenarios. This course prepares Health Informatics and Information Technology students for BIOL 160 and BIOL 260 and is required for all Medical Assisting program majors. NOTE: ALHL 115 is not a substitute for MDAS 141. Medical terminology courses transferred from other institutions must be evaluated by the Medical Assisting program coordinator before awarding transfer credit. This course is the same as OFAD 141.NOTE: Course offered fall, spring, and may be offered during additional sessions.
