Product Description
A concise 5-page study sheet on the medical terminology used to precisely describe the human body, including its components, processes, conditions affecting it, and procedures performed on it. This document focuses on the essential medical terms that can be used for all human body systems and is designed to serve as a great starting point to any course in human anatomy.

I created this document to introduce my anatomy students to the common Latin and Greek roots, prefixes and suffixes that make up most medical terms. Instead of having my students memorize the meanings of hundreds of medical terms spanning multiple units of study, my goal was to have them develop a deep understanding of the major building blocks of medical language so that they could figure out the meaning of even the most complicated medical terms simply by breaking them down into their component parts.

This document includes 5 pages of summary notes, examples, diagrams, and detailed tables that cover the topics below.

Contents:

- Introduction to medical terminology
- 4 parts of most medical terms
- Word roots
- Combining or linking forms
- Prefixes
- Suffixes
- Examples of medical terms broken down into their 4 component parts
- Table of general medical prefixes (e.g. ante-, endo-, peri-)
- Table of general medical suffixes (e.g. –ectomy, -genic, -pathy)
- Table of general medical root words (e.g. adreno-, fibro-, myo-)
- Table of directional terms related to anatomical position (e.g. anterior, posterior, distal, proximal)
