Medical Terminology: Language for Health Care provides the comprehensive coverage needed for a 2-term or intensive 1-term Medical Terminology course. It provides clear instruction on the basics of anatomy and physiology, using a body systems approach, and making use of extensive new line art figures and photos. The text includes both clinical and administrative office examples and cases that provide a realistic context for introducing terms and definitions. The up-to-date coverage includes a new chapter on Alternative Medicine, and information on HIPAA guidelines. The student textbook comes with a free Student CD-ROM with interactive exercises and activities, and a 2-CD Audio Program for building pronunciation skills. Wordbuilding exercises are included in every body system chapter.
