The Language of Medicine

Market-leading textbook, The Language of Medicine by Davi-Ellen Chabner, brings medical terms to life with a text/workbook format organised by body systems, offering additional chapters on specific key areas of health care, such as cancer and psychiatry. Anatomy and physiology sections are generously illustrated in full colour and reinforced with exercises on combining forms and word parts.

  • Presents medical terms in the context of anatomy and physiology, following a logical body-system chapter organisation.
  • Clearly explains the material in simple, non-technical language, making the information accessible even to students with little or no previous medical or scientific background.
  • A wealth of exercises within each chapter and at the end of each section engages users and challenges them to test understanding of material.
