Learning English in Mongolia

Medical Terminology


Table of Contents | Links & Resources | Dedication


Welcome to our medical terminology lessons. Medical terminology is a part of language used by doctors, nurses and other people who work in health. These lessons follow the same outline as our online ‘Anatomy & Physiology’ textbook. You can study the Medical Terminology lessons alone or with ‘Anatomy & Physiology.’

Online quizzes will test what you learned. And there are other tools included to help you improve your medical English terminology. These online lessons also features links to surgical videos, histology, and interactive diagrams. Multimedia is a way of helping you to hear it too.

This is new for 2017 and is an ongoing project. Below, you will find links to completed sections of the online lessons, which will be added every week, so keep coming back.
