You learn the medical terminology that is used in all medical facilities, such as: * dotor's office * pharmacy * hospitals * nursing homes * hospices * medical transcribing services * medical insurance claims * veterinary services The medical terminology that is used by these facilities is used by ALL medical facilities; they all use the same medical terms. A few examples of medical terminology are: * po to take by mouth * tid to take three times a day * bid to take twice a day * hs to take a bed time * sx surgery * hx history (as in medical history) * fx fracture * ASA aspirin * CA cancer
