When you enroll in a online Medical Terminology course, you will enter a highly specialized world governed by strange acronyms like HIPAA and where the difference between the right word and the wrong one can have life-affecting consequences.
You'll learn the etymology of words used to describe the human body, proper terminology for major pathological conditions and all major systems. And when you’re done, you’ll be able to differentiate tissues and organs, compare and contrast different body systems, and define the function of each.
* A 3-credit StraighterLine course is estimated to require approximately 75 hours of study time. Dedicating 17-20 hours per week should allow a student to finish within a single month subscription. That estimate is not guaranteed, and individual experience may differ. Prices do not include books.
