A fun, accessible way to connect with medical terminology

Successful healthcare professionals make connections every day—whether it is connecting word parts to make medical terms, recognizing the interconnectedness of body structures and systems, or communicating with colleagues and patients. Medical Terminology: Get Connected! prepares readers to make these connections. Designed to be fun, accessible, and eye-catching, its powerful approach guides students step-by-step through mastering relevant word parts, understanding word roots, and word assembly. To help students learn meanings, correct spelling, pronunciation, and other components of each term, the book contains numerous exercises, tips, and colorful figures. As they practice and apply what they read, students will learn to build, translate, and link medical terms with confidence.
