Learning Medical Terms—My Top 3 Tips

Stop in virtually for a one-day "Medical and Clinical Terminology" workshop for people just starting out their biology-based careers. 

Andrea Varias, a clinical researcher at the Stanford University Rodriguez Translational Therapeutics Lab, will be demystifying the language of research, medicine, and biopharma in this UCSC Silicon Valley Extension professional development course. It's a great refresher as well.

What are the top 3 tips?

  • Medical Prefixes and Suffixes—Tackle these first.

  • Word Roots—Get familiar with the basis of words, such as "audi" (hearing), "cardi" (heart), or "derm" (skin)
  • Acronyms—HAPE, TSH, SIDS—These take practice.
