This course is designed for students who wish to enter an allied health field related to physical activity and human movement.

Some of the allied health programs listed above requires a 3 credit course in medical terminology prior to admission into graduate school and this course fulfills that requirement. The goal of this course is to help students develop an understanding of medical terminology related to physical activity and human movement used when dealing with the anatomy and physiology of the systems of the body, disease processes associated with each system, and pharmacology and clinical treatments associated with the pathology of the body systems. Students will appreciate the weights and measures, chemical symbols, diagnoses, procedures, and medical documentation used in allied health fields, especially in sports and human movement medicine.
