A fun, accessible approach to medical terminology
An introductory-level “essentials” text, Medical Terminology: Get Connected! prepares students to make connections — whether it’s connecting word parts to form medical terms, learning connections within body systems, or communicating with colleagues and patients. Unlike other medical terminology resources, this text presents terms by medical specialty, rather than organ systems, giving it practical use. The fully updated 3rd edition has more engaging practice exercises, more robust visuals, and more detail on the healthcare practitioners who use medical terminology.

Personalize learning 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 Medical Terminology, students build a solid foundation of medical language through interactive games, Dynamic Study Modules, and Guided Lectures.
