Personalized learning for every student

Medical Terminology in a Flash! + Medical Language Lab work together to create an immersive, multimedia experience for students and complete teaching materials for instructors. The visually rich text with perforated/tear-out flash cards leads students to proficiency through techniques for multiple learning styles. The online program, Medical Language Lab, tracks student progress until they’ve mastered the language of medicine.

Students will discover how to make different study strategies work for them, whether their preference for learning is auditory, visual, kinesthetic, oral-dependent, or writing-dependent, or a combination.

Great Book! “You learn terminology very quickly and great as a review tool!”

All you need!“The best textbook I have used for terminology. The one I used before was okay but by far this text was more substantial and thorough. I would definitely recommend. It’s easy to understand. Will keep on hand for review if needed.”
