A review course for all interpreters and translators
MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY 101 FOR INTERPRETERS (TM)
A review of basic medical terminology. Participants will acquire the essential knowledge of the basic components of medical terminology. Anatomy (structure), physiology (function), and pathology (diseases and disorders), are discussed. The session establishes a supporting knowledge that can encourage more independent and active learning. This is an interactive class. During the session’s activities, the class will be divided into groups to work together and practice. Bring your dictionaries and a notepad. This session is language neutral and does NOT address the translation of terms, but the meaning of the terminology in English.
* Identify basic anatomy and physiology related to the major body systems.
* Recognize prefixes, root words, and suffixes used to form medical terms.
* Explain terminology of common diseases and disorders associated to each body system.
* Recognize meaning of most common diagnostic procedures
An Illustrated guide to every part of the human body and how it works.
