Want to help students learn medical terms on their terms? Exploring Medical Language, 10th Edition is a one-of-a-kind resource incorporating all the proven methods for mastering medical terminology that work best for today’s students. At the heart of this tenth edition is the innovative worktext, which enables students to gradually acquire an understanding of medical terminology by first mastering word parts and then learning how to combine the parts into full medical terms that make sense. Additionally, a wealth of engaging online learning tools — such as interactive games, case studies, and on-the-go auditory reviews — work in tandem with the material being covered in the worktext to help reinforce learning and aid in professional application. It’s the all-in-one medical terminology package that truly speaks to today’s students.

    • Systematic presentation of medical terminology provides a foundation of word parts (prefixes, suffixes, and word roots), then builds words by combining the parts.
    • Comprehensive coverage of words that are built from word parts and other important terms creates a distinction between terms built from word parts and those not easily recognized as built from word parts and provides thorough coverage of both.
    • Over 400 flashcards enable readers to review word parts when and where they want.
    • Margin boxes detail important information such as medical terminology facts and tips, historical information, weblinks, and complementary and alternative medicine terms.
    • Simulations of electronic health records familiarize readers with the growing use of EHRs in healthcare settings.
    • AudioTerms study companion can be easily downloaded to portable media players and includes over 3,000 terms, each of which is pronounced and defined.
    • Integrated online learning tools feature interactive games and activities, A+P boosters, career videos, and more that cater to the way today’s learners master medical terminology.
    • NEW! Case studies introduce medical terminology in context and encourage critical thinking and information application.
    • NEW! Adaptive learning, gradeable case studies, and audio reviews are now available in the online course to provide a complete learning experience for distance learners. For separate sale.
    • NEW! Updated integrative medicine boxes introduce terminology related to integrative medicine (formerly complementary and alternative medicine).
    • NEW! Pronunciation exercises focus on the importance of the correct pronunciation of terms.
    • NEW! Updated terms and abbreviations reflect the latest advances in technology and the healthcare delivery system.
