Medical Terminology and Body Systems I prepares you to use appropriate medical terminology to identify the structural organization of the body, identify body systems, and describe body special orientation. You will identify the normal function of each body system. You will identify word parts and abbreviations as they relate to body systems. This course has 4 Credit Units that will assist you in learning the course objectives.
NOTE: This is a Terminology course which will require you to properly pronounce words. You will need a set of headphones with a microphone attached in order to complete some assignments. Ear buds with microphone work just fine.
