Medical Terminology Systems

A Body Systems Approach


Add to Cart

A word-building and body systems approach builds a firm foundation in the language of medicine.


Your students will begin by learning the parts of words—roots, combining forms, suffixes, and prefixes. Then, they use their understanding of word parts to learn medical terminology. 


Also Included: A 1-year subscription to Medical Language Lab, and access to DavisPlus student and instructor online resources.




The Plus code inside new, printed texts unlocks a wealth of resources. Students simply scratch off the code; visit DavisPlus.com; log into their student accounts or create new ones; and enter their codes.
