5th edition

Overview

For courses in medical terminology.

An immersive deep-dive into medical terminology
Medical Language: Immerse Yourself
is grounded in immersive language learning. Rather than memorizing vocabulary, students experience the sights and sounds of health care as they listen, speak, write, watch, examine, and think. A greater quantity and variety of exercises than any other text maximize opportunities to reinforce learning. The 5th edition retains its organization by medical specialty — the way medicine is practiced in the real world. New to the 5th edition is a reorganization into 15 chapters, perfect for a 16-week course, and into five sections correlated with learning outcomes. Each section ends with new Practice Laps evaluating student competency and underscoring learning goals.

Also available with MyLab Medical Terminology
By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student. With MyLab Medical Terminology, students build a solid foundation of medical language through interactive games, Dynamic Study Modules, and narrated lectures.
