Medical Terminology: Test Your Skills

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.

Medical Terminology That You’ll Actually Remember

Taking a course in medical terminology is one thing – remembering the definitions of medical terms when you need them, is quite another. Referring to a medical dictionary is a good habit, but for work that involves speed as well as accuracy you will need a good working knowledge of medical vocabulary. Medical office workers like medical transcriptionists, medical scribes, medical record technicians or medical coders and billers, will need to speak medicine like a second language.

For example, a common complaint from medical coders trying to get certified, is that the hardest part of medical coding certification exams involves the section on medical terminology. A basic understanding of common medical terminology is important not just for that part of coding certification exams though, but for speed and accuracy in looking up ICD codes in general. In real life, it means you have a good knowledge of medical vocabulary, and need to pick up a medical dictionary less often.

Our video series uses everyday language to define basic medical words, because what’s the point of a definition that makes you have to open a dictionary? Each lesson illustrates the meaning of one term, using mostly everyday images – instead of medical images – to make them more relatable. The illustrations are deliberately chosen to be outrageous or funny, so you will remember them long after watching the video. We use and encourage repetition, as another way to help with memorization.

Use our lessons alongside your medical terminology coursework, as an alternative or a supplement to flashcards, games or cheatsheets. We encourage you to share your learning experience in our comments section. Happy learning!
