Help students become fluent in medical terminology

Med Term Speak & Spell

To be fully fluent in a language, a person must be able to read, write, and converse accurately and clearly. We take the same approach to learning medical terminology—the foundational building block of a successful and safe career in healthcare. With Med Term Speak & Spell, students start at a basic level and build comfort and familiarity with terms, word parts, structures, spelling, and finally, pronunciation. Each Med Term Speak & Spell module consists of four parts:

  • Listen and View: Users listen to a pronunciation while viewing an associated image, then see the term broken into parts, where appropriate.
  • Listen and Identify: Students listen to a pronunciation while viewing an associated image, then choose the correct term from a pool of possible answers.
  • Listen and Spell: Users listen to a pronunciation while viewing an associated image, then spell the words and see them broken into parts, where appropriate.
  • Listen and Pronounce: Students listen to someone saying a term, while viewing an associated image. They can then record their pronunciation and compare it to the correct one.

Users can repeat these exercises as many times as they'd like.

Help each student learn through personalized study

Dynamic Study Modules

Help students study effectively on their own by continuously assessing their activity and performance in real time. Here's how it works: students complete a set of questions with a unique answer format that also asks them to indicate their confidence level. Questions repeat until the student can answer them all correctly and confidently. Once completed, Dynamic Study Modules explain the concept using materials from the text. These are available as graded assignments prior to class, and accessible on smartphones, tablets, and computers. NEW! Instructors can now remove questions from Dynamic Study Modules to better fit their course. Available for select titles.
