Medical Terminology

Medical Terminology One Day Course

This course helps participants understand the way medical words are constructed and covers many of the main medical specialties.

It will provide the opportunity for medical support workers to recognise and interpret medical terms and increase their understanding of the general language used in medicine.

The course is taught in a relaxed and fun way and delegates are given a workbook to use on the day and keep as a record of their learning.

This can be added to after the course to become a useful resource.
