Terminology training is a way to understand medical terms for those without a clinical background. In the workplace delegates hear and see many medical terms. These courses are designed to enable delegates to learn the medical language and hear how words and phrases are pronounced. In essence, face to face training courses are a way to understand medicine for delegates who do not have a clinical background. All training courses are designed with the learner in mind and attempt to turn a potentially dry subject into an enjoyable learning experience, and our philosophy is to ensure that there is a high degree of interaction, be this through workshops, quizzes or a question and answer session depending on the nature of the event.
Courses are highly practical and centre around a course workbook, which delegates complete as the course progresses, and a quick reference medical prefix and suffix booklet, which delegates will learn how to use, and which they will be able to take away for use back at their work place.
A common approach is to provide a series of modules within a course, which firstly explains some of the of secrets in decoding works, by looking at the prefixes and suffixes, and then goes on to explain how this relates to different medical specialisations such as:
- Ear, nose and throat
- Respiratory System
- Digestive System
- Reproductive System
- General medicine/ surgery
