Medical Terminology

About the Course

The medical profession is one of the most rewarding industries to work in – it is also very unique.

Comprising 15 comprehensive and interactive lessons, this course has been developed to help you get under the skin of commonly used medical terminology across a wide range of disciplines including biology, cardiology, psychology and many more. You will be guided through each speciality step-by-step and learn how seemingly complicated medical jargon is built up from word roots, prefixes and suffixes, so this language becomes second nature to you.

We want to ensure you find your training path as easy as possible so, as with our standard training method, this course can be studied at times to suit you and at your own pace meaning you can fit your training around your existing work and life commitments.

On successful completion of this course you will be able to add the renowned Pitman Training accolade to add to your CV, a sure sign to employers that you have been trained to the highest possible standard.

Benefits
