Medical Language: Immerse Yourself is grounded in immersive language learning. Rather than memorize vocabulary, you'll experience the sights and sounds of health care as you listen, speak, write, examine and think. To reinforce learning, the text offers a greater quantity and variety of exercises than any other publication of its kind.

Hands-on practice offers practical exposure to real-world healthcare tasks. Chapter review exercises include analysis of real medical reports, as well as role-play activities prompting you to describe a patient's condition using medical language.

Organized by medical specialty, the 5th Edition has been regrouped into 15 chapters designed for a 16-week course. Each chapter now consists of 5 sections correlated with learning outcomes. Practice Laps at the end of each section gauge your comprehension by learning outcome.
