We live in an age where you can learn many new things simply by watching a video on YouTube. Differentiating reliable learning from questionable information is a much harder task. Even when you find what you need, it’s hard to not get distracted by other video suggestions. In this short tutorial, we will show how learn medical terminology with our trusted video series – without getting sidetracked.
Method 1: General Search
The easiest way is to go to YouTube.com and enter the term “1 minute medical terminology” in the search box. Results will list our channel, playlists and all videos.
Advantage: straightforward; you’re taken directly to a list of our videos and playlists. We research, proofread, and name our sources at the end of each lesson, so you can trust what we teach.
Disadvantage: the lessons are listed individually, so you may have to repeat the search after watching each video.
Method 2: Channel Search
Search YouTube for “1 minute medical terminology” then refine the search results using filters. Under filter options, select “type”, then choose “channel”. The search results will show our channel, 1-Minute Medical Terminology, near the top. (We’re actually the top channel dealing only with teaching the meaning of medical terms).
Advantage: easy access to the full list of medical terms our lessons cover.
Disadvantage: same as for method 1
Method 3: Playlist Search
Repeat the search just as in method 2, but instead of selecting “channel” select “playlist”. The results will include all our learning playlists.
Advantage: this is the best method if you already have some knowledge of medical terminology. Simply choose a playlist and keep without being constantly redirected to other channel’s videos.
Disadvantage: this may not be the best way for beginners to learn medical terminology. For better memorization, we advise beginners to learn one new term at a time.
Method 4: Search From Within Channel
Go to our channel and click the search icon (located right next to the “about” tab). Use that search box to look up individual terms, just like you use a dictionary. For example, type in “epi” to find our tutorial on the medical prefix “epi-“.
Advantage: you can find the meaning of specific terms you need, without sorting through 70-plus videos. It’s also an easy way to select videos for adding to playlists of your own.
