Advanced Medical Terminology

Medical Terminology Course NHSThis Advanced Medical Terminology two-day course is designed for those who have attended an Intermediate Medical Terminology Course. Like the Intermediate Course, participants have plenty of chances to practice constructing complex medical terms from word roots, medical prefixes and medical suffixes. The course uses a variety of case studies, personal examples, anatomical terms and diagnostic procedure examples to enhance learning.

Delegates will expand their understanding of root words, suffixes and prefixes. They will also be able to recognise a wider range of abbreviations and will therefore be more confident in applying medical terms back in the work place. The course also covers basic anatomy and physiology of specific body systems and associated diseases.

Course objectives

The objectives of the course are to enable delegates to be able to:

  • Consolidate their knowledge of medical terminology
  • State the meaning of medical prefixes and suffixes at an advanced level
  • Identify root words and basic anatomy of:
    • Digestive system
    • Skeletal system
    • Dermatology
    • Gynaecology
    • Nervous system
    • Cardiology
    • Oncology

All delegates will be provided with a course manual and will be issued with a certificate upon completion of the course. This course is delivered through our partners Medical Services Training
