Synopses & Reviews
The renowned medical terminology experts Regina Masters and Barbara Gylys have created an exciting new learning package that approaches the study of medical terminology from a medical specialty point of view. Readers involved in a cardiovascular specialty, for example, learn terms as they relate to that specific area. This approach allows for immediate application and solidifies the learning of medical terms as no other approach can. The learning package consists of a text, an audio CD to practice accurate pronunciation, and the popular Interactive Medical Terminology 2.0, a feature-filled CD-ROM I think this Medical Terminology Specialties book will be very valuable to my medical assisting students. Love the CDs and the fact I can combine with Taber's at a savings -- Becky Theis, RN, Vanguard Adult Career Center, Fremont, Ohio This book goes into great detail. The specialty letters are great. Good clinical pictures. I like the Body Systems Connection - very clever. Very correct to ID primary and second lesions (derm). Good to have prescribed drugs relating to systems/specialties. -- Holly Bennett, RBN, Comprehensive Medical Office Assistant Program, Amador Valley Adult Education, Pleasanton, California This book seems to cover much of my requirements needed for the students to complete or meet competencies. I love the puzzles and CD for extra learning. -- Cindy McNeal, LVN, Medical Assisting Program, Poway Unified - ROP, Carlsbad, California I particularly liked the inclusion of medical records for the coding students. -- Eleanor Ayers, BS, MLS, Herzing College - Lakeland Academy, Minneapolis, Minnesota We recently discovered that Microsoft made a correction to Windows Media Player 9.0, which could cause difficulty with the audio feedback on Interactive Medical Terminology 2.0 (IMT). To overcome this challenge, we designed a patch for you to download. Click here.
