Medical Terminology is a fast-paced class that parallels the speed of a college-level course. It introduces a variety of medical terms used in health-related fields. Emphasis is on the analysis and building of medical terms using Latin and Greek prefixes, roots, and suffixes. Medical vocabulary, abbreviations, anatomical terms, definitions, spelling, and pronunciation of medical terms are stressed. This course is a requirement for many of the associate’s degree health sciences programs at Moraine Valley Community College. Students may be able to earn dual-enrollment credit in the MVCC course MRT110.
