Medical Terminology: A Self-learning Text, Volume 1
A combination text and workbook, MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY: A Self Learning Text uses word roots to build term definitions. A high exercise to test ratio gives ample opportunity for students to check their comprehension and allows self-study or guided-study course formats. By using an organ-system approach and assuming no prior knowledge, Birmingham is an "essentials" text, broad-based enough to apply to all allied health fields.
