This text presents medical vocabulary in a systematic and logical format. Each of the 17 chapters is based on a topical word group for a body system or specialty and includes the structure of word roots, definitions, pronunciation, shorthand outlines, practice transcriptions, and simplified medical information through sample correspondence, reports and diagnoses. The guide for self-teaching enables those whose work involves using medical terms to approach the language as a whole and to derive shorthand equivalents for new or unfamiliar words. Bibliography, subject index.
