BIO 160 - Medical and Scientific Terminology

3 Credits

This course introduces students to common terminology within the medical and scientific professions. Medicine and science use clear and precise terminology globally to communicate within the profession. Terminology can be a barrier to communication among non-professionals and to learning and understanding scientific material. This course breaks down the language of medicine and science into simpler prefixes, roots, and suffixes that are then assembled into various combinations. By the end of the course, students will be able to remember, define, pronounce, spell, and construct thousands of medical terms.
