The Language of Medicine demonstrates the author's unique method of teaching, in which students learn how to divide complex medical terms into their component parts. The meanings of these terms are carefully described in the context of how the body works in health and disease. In a workbook format, the first four chapters introduce word analysis and terminology from the body as a whole. Subsequent chapters focus on a body system or medical specialty. Laboratory tests, clinical procedures, medical reports, and practical applications are included throughout the text. Students learn to master the medical language through word analysis and seeing terminology in action. Terminology and complex medical processes are presented in an easy-to-understand manner, readily accessible to students of all levels.
The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

This book is awesome, not only does it cover terminology, it covers pathology, anatomy and physiology of each body system, and other medical field such as pharmacology, oncology, radiology and psychiatry.

...I have reviewed many, many text books used for studying medical terminology and 'The Language of Medicine' is the best of the lot...it may have a few problems, but on average outweighs many others..its outline is clear, easy to understand, and effective...it is impossible to learn and retain all the necessary terms required to function in industry without understanding the background and the association of the terms to the body...therefore, the study of the anatomy, physiology, and pathology is a necessity.Was this review helpful?
