Who doesn’t love a free quiz – especially one where nobody but yourself has to see the score? Test your medical vocabulary with our new quiz series. With so much learning packed into healthcare related courses, it’s no wonder that some basics – like medical terms we don’t use everyday – are quickly forgotten. But reviewing medical terminology may brush away the cobwebs and improve your job performance, or even help you make a good impression at an interview. Whether you’re a newbie or an old hand, understanding the language of healthcare is a valuable asset. From the reception desk to the operating room or billing department, a good knowledge of medical terminology is essential for accurate communication. Our 1-minute videos teach in a fun way that’s easy to remember. Plus, all our tutorials list references, so you can be sure we’re not just making this stuff up. It pays to be careful, because there are errors in some popular medical terminology cheatsheets floating about online.
