First Week Assignments:
Introduction to Medical Terminology and The Human Body in Health and Disease. This class is a very interesting and necessary class. Most of the words that are used in Medicine come from the Latin and the Greek. With the advancement of medical and scientific knowledge, medical language changes. Some words are discarded, the meanings of others are altered, and new words are added.
Most medical terms built from word parts consist of some or all of the following components: Word roots, Suffixes, Prefixes, and Combining forms.
It is important to review the “Double R” Suffixes, the Unusual Plural Forms, and some abbreviations are necessary to be known.
Every hospital or medical facility use their own abbreviations.
The structure of the human body falls into the following four categories: cells, tissues, organs, and systems. Each structure is a highly organized unit of smaller structures.
Anatomic reference systems are used to describe the location and function of body parts. These anatomical reference systems include: Body planes, Body directions, Body cavities, and Structural units.
The principal structures of cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems are reviewed during this first week.
