Medical Terminology

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of an online medical terminology course that fulfills the prerequisite for PA schools. Ideally, I am looking for a self-paced program, though I am open to other options.

Have you tried searching the online classes thread yet? It's long, so I imagine there's a suggestion in there for med term somewhere.

I do not know of any that do not require in person test taking.  Just a tip, find one that meets credit requirements.  Some schools want 3 credit Vs 2 credit medical terminology and it is a bummer to find that out while searching for schools.  I guess take the one that can get you into the schools you want.

Took University of phoenix’s class this last spring. It is 3 credits and fulfilled the requirement at the schools I applied to.

I took an online medical terminology course at University of Arizona online! It was 3 credits and self paced over the semester (super easy!!) Im not sure how it works when you aren't enrolled in a bacc program but it was great!

I took mine through a local community college, I was able to enroll for the one class and never had to go in and test in person. Super easy.

I took mine through university of San Diego. It was a 2 credit, graduate level ( I have no clue why) self paced course. I did it in 3 days and it was accepted everywhere. It was literally just 25 modules with a quiz at the end.

Thank you for this reference !  I'm taking it right now.  Cost is less than similar courses.  It now seems to be 16 modules, and 3 small exercises.  But yes, it is self- paced and that's perfect.
