Features

Personalize learning with MyMedicalTerminologyLab™
MyMedicalTerminologyLab
is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them better absorb course material and understand difficult concepts. No matter their learning style, students will build a solid foundation of medical language through MyMedicalTerminologyLab’s interactive games, Dynamic Study Modules, and narrated lectures.

  • Enable personalized learning at scale. Not every student learns the same way and at the same rate. And now, thanks to advances in adaptive learning technology, you no longer have to teach as if they do. The Dynamic Study Modules in MyMedicalTerminologyLab continuously assess student performance and activity in real time, and, using data and analytics, personalize content to reinforce concepts that target each student's strengths and weaknesses.
  • Make learning medical language fun! Students learn when they are engaged. To make learning medical language, fun each chapter inside MyMedicalTerminologyLab has a variety of Interactive Study Games that focus on spelling, pronunciation, A&P, and word building. Students and instructors alike report that these fun games increase students’ medical vocabulary.
  • Supplement your lectures. Offer your students an exceptional lecture component to your course with our book-specific, narrated Guided Lectures. Students can use these lectures to reinforce correct pronunciation of medical terms, prepare for class, or for review after class.
  • Address varied skill levels. Self-Paced Study Modules are engaging tutorials that provide an overview of the content presented in each chapter. These modules are perfect for an interactive, self-paced review of the chapter.

Medical Terminology Complete! is today’s visual, learn-at-your-own-pace guide to medical terminology

  • UPDATED: Designed to support rapid learning and easy review. To simplify learning and review, the step-by-step approach features color-coded word parts, step-by-step “at-a-glance” word-building tables, and alphabetized key terms. All selected terms have been carefully screened for current accuracy, with outdated terms removed and new terms added to bring the text up-to-date.
  • Encourage students to read, participate, and learn independently at their own pace. The programmed, active-learning approach helps students learn, fill in blanks, and check answers as they read. The conversational writing style is supported with exciting illustrations and photographs that promote engagement.
  • Focus on the most important terms used in hospitals and clinics, without overwhelming students with detail or theory. Only the anatomy and physiology information students need to know is covered, offering a welcome contrast to conventional texts that often resemble abbreviated encyclopedias.
  • ENHANCED: Prepare students to work in clinical settings. In most chapters, the list of terms and their meanings reflects a shift from a biological perspective to a more clinical perspective, thereby providing improved clinical training for students.

  • UPDATED: Place medical terminology in the context of actual practice. Medical Report Exercises—with two medical reports and case studies with critical-thinking questions—deepen students’ understanding of medical terminology, and give them hands-on practice in realistic settings. Medical reports have been rewritten to conform to the widely-popular SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Plan) format for clinical records.

  • Quickly give students the knowledge they need. Medical terms and Practice exercises are innovatively organized into Symptoms and Signs, Diseases and Disorders, and Treatments and Procedures, for easy and intuitive reference.

  • Teach your course your way. Flexible enough for instructors to use in any way they wish, the text is designed to support lectures, or to serve as an independent student workbook. Filled with extensive self-assessment questions and reinforcement exercises, it helps students learn more effectively with less instructor guidance.
  • UPDATED: Appeal to visual learners. Bring concepts to life with medically-accurate, precise, vibrant, clear, and consistent illustrations. Image Labeling Frames actively engage students with the illustrations, reinforcing their understanding of the anatomy. Many new photographs and illustrations help learners more easily visualize the concepts and meanings of selected terms.
  • Provide games that make learning and review more fun. Practice exercises after each chapter sub-section provide opportunities to review with simple games such as The Right Match, Linkup, and Break the Chain.
  • Promote additional interest in medical terminology. Did You Know? boxes reveal intriguing facts about the origins of medical terms, and connect terms to clinical issues. Words to Watch Out For! boxes provide tips for accurately handling commonly misspelled or error-prone terms and word parts.
  • Support teaching and learning. Qualified adopters are eligible to receive a wealth of materials designed to help instructors prepare, present, and assess. For more information, please contact your Pearson representative or visit www.pearsonhighered.com/educator.
