Medical records activities help you become familiar with entries and terminology in the medical record. Threaded case studies follow patients with particular medical conditions throughout an entire module to show the real-life applications of medical terminology.

End-of-module exams assess your mastery of the material, with scores automatically sent to the instructor. Glossary of over 5,000 terms includes definitions and pronunciations in English and Spanish.
