  1. Unbelievably great!!
    review by Kristin on 7/17/2016

    We were wildly impressed by this course! My son has an interest in becoming a doctor or physical therapist as a career so he thought he'd take this course. It was so thorough and in depth! The pace was fast and the content challenging. My son talked with a family friend who took medical terminology in his pre-med college courses, and the friend found this Medical Terminology high school course to exceed his college experience. It is a tough course, and fabulous preparation for any student interested in future medical studies.

To use this course, you'll need a computer with an Internet connection.  Some courses require additional free software programs, which you can download from the Internet.
