As we study the Greek and Latin origins of medical terminology, we hope to steer between the two extremes of an excessively abstract study of word origins and a too-narrow, memorize-the-word-lists approach. While it is true that technical terminologies confront the student with a daunting number of words to know, it is equally true that a proper methodology for analyzing and understanding new terms can reduce an otherwise onerous task to a dynamic word assimilation process. And that is the object of this course, with its dual emphasis on reflective study and an active practice of word analysis and explication.

The Goal Setting assignment was very helpful and it was nice to work at my own pace. The written assignments helped me understand the material well and feel prepared for the exams.
