Medical Terminology & Allied Health Services

MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY AND ALLIED HEALTH SERVICES

Together, Medical Terminology and Allied Health Services provide students with the background knowledge to be successful in a variety of health care careers.  Both courses are dual-enrolled with South Central Louisiana Technical College; therefore, students can earn a total of 6 credit hours at SCLTC while earning 2 Carnegie units in high school in a single school year.  

Allied Health Services (Fall) covers human anatomy, physiology, and disease.  Medical Terminology (Spring) serves as an introduction to medical terms by use of prefixes, suffixes, and anatomical roots.
