Tips for ACC librarians helping health science students

Medical Terminology

Many students in ACC Health Science programs may have taken either HPRS 1106 (or 1206) Essentials of Medical Terminology before beginning their programs, but they often need to revisit this topic or find information specific to their future careers.

Medical Dictionaries

Most any medical dictionary will help with medical terminology, but Taber's Cyclopedia Medical Dictionary is the one most often required on health science syllabi.  The following is a link to a specific e-book record, but be sure to search the catalog -- there may be other editions available in print and as e-books.
