The continuing focus of this new edition is its cutting-edge relevance to real-life medical practice. Drawing on the newest technology, state-of-the-art medical procedures, and treatments, The Language of Medicine brings medical terminology to life. The newly-drawn dynamic images and up-to-date photography plus compelling patient stories further illustrate medical terminology in action.
I am honored that this text continues to be the book instructors return to, year after year, because their students tell them that it works! As a student, you will find that speaks to you no matter what your background or level of education. It is written in simple, non-technical language that creates an exceptionally accessible pathway to learning. Since it is a workbook-text combination, you engage and interact on practically every page through writing and reviewing terms, labeling diagrams, and answering questions. Terminology is explained so that you understand medical terms in their proper context, which is the structure and function of the human body in health and disease.
