HSC 1531 - Medical Terminology


3 credits
Prerequisites: SB 1720 Testing Exemption or successful completion of all Developmental courses
This course is designed to provide a basis for understanding, utilizing, and pronouncing the vocabulary used by health care professionals. The language of medicine becomes understandable through the study of word roots, combining forms, prefixes and suffixes. Major disease processes and pathological conditions of specific body systems will be discussed, along with diagnostic and surgical terms. This course has no accompanying laboratory and therefore cannot be used to meet the science requirement at Florida SouthWestern State College.
