Medicine: general issues

Exploring Medical Language provides students in health care educational programs with the basic knowledge of medical language they need to communicate clearly and understand communication from other health care team members. LaFleur's strength has always been its clear presentation of not only medical terms built from word parts, but also those not built from word parts, which are sometimes omitted from other texts. The text also reviews anatomic terminology. Another popular feature of the book is its wealth of exercises that help the student memorize the word parts and their meanings, so that they can combine the parts to form medical terms.
