BSMSA Medical Terminology for Beginners

As the name suggests, the BSMSA Medical Terminology for Beginners course is for absolute beginners to medical terminology and is suitable for anyone wanting to enter medical administration / secretarial work in the public or private sector. The course contains one module covering the basics of how a medical term is formed (prefixes, suffixes and root words) and leads gently on to more complex terms.

Learning incorporates a number of self-assessment opportunities and a final assessment, enabling the student to print off a certificate detailing the percentage scored.
The minimum requirements are a good standard of English and the ability to commit to 2 hours of self-study per week. The course takes 10-20 hours to complete with access being available for 3 months.
The cost is £49.50. If your fee is being paid for by a Trust or similar, payment, or a purchase order guaranteeing payment, must be sent to the BSMSA office at the time of enrolment. An invoice may be requested in advance.
