Overview

Stedman's Medical Terminology: Steps to Success in Medical Language

Lead your students to success with the name you trust! Stedman's Medical Terminology: Steps to Success in Medical Language is a mid-level medical terminology text perfect for instructors looking for minimal coverage of anatomy and physiology and plenty of hands-on exercises to reinforce learning. Each chapter alternates between term presentation and exercises to ensure that students can apply what they have learned immediately.

Throughout the text, exercises progress in a meaningful way, from recall and review, to word building, to comprehension, and finally to application and analysis through the use of "real-world" case study and medical record exercises. This approach allows the student to actively see their knowledge building and to connect what they are learning to real-life context. A robust, realistic, and relevant art program enhances the text, especially for visual learners.

A full suite of ancillaries, including videos and animations, is available for both students and instructors.
