This is an online course developed by F.A. Davis Publishing that focuses on the terminology used by medical and healthcare professionals. There is no on campus component. Students become "independent learners" because there are no classes, lectures, labs, discussions, or meeting times. Students study the online learning modules and the textbook and then take an online exam any time of their choosing as long as it is before the end of the course. A suggested schedule is provided for these exams to help you avoid procrastination and last minute cramming.
The goals of this course for each student are 1) to have a good grasp of the meaning and spelling of medical terms commonly used in typical health care settings and 2) to develop and practice the skill of time management. One of the keys to effective communications in the health care field is the proper use of terminology to adequately and accurately describe a clinical situation. SPELLING: Students are responsible for knowing the correct spelling of medical terms. FORMS: Students are responsible for knowing the singular and plural forms of terms. Learning to organize your time is a typical responsibility that we all face in our day-to-day lives. We all need to have a system of keeping track of important deadlines. If we don't meet deadlines, there are often consequences, such as late-payment fees and poor job performance evaluations.
