Medical Terminology

Updated: Jun 14

Yesterday I completed the third course of AulaSIC's Biomedical Translation Master's that began a month ago.


Instructed by Milly Landini, this 40-hour course was about medical terminology. Covered topics included linguistic issues, anatomy, physiology, and pathology.


Having taken on medical translation projects for the last five years, I already knew about most of these topics. I finally understood how to properly use terms like proximal and distal. I also learned that the Spanish word apófisis is translated as process in English.


My final grade was 98.12 percent!



This edition—number 17—of the Biomedical Translation Master's comprises a total of eight courses. The next one deals with clinical trial protocols and will last through the first week of June.


Although referred to as a master's, this isn't a college degree. It's a certificate program comprising several courses through November of 2021.


Additionally, I'm taking a course about chemistry for patent and medical translators. This course is often included in the program I'm taking, but it's not part of my program edition.
