Course objectives
Aim of tuition: 1. Acquisition of terminological competence, i.e., the ability to use with precision and linguistic correctness Latin and/or Greek terminological material both orally and in writing, especial regard to head and neck region. 2. Acquisition of basic orientation in the general theoretical problems of medical terminology.
General characteristics of the subject: Greek-Latin medical terminology is one of the relevant means for acquisition of the target knowledge of medical students. The tuition is of both theoretic and practical character, conceived as a preparatory course sui generis, introducing the students into the study of medicine by means of its language.
The content of tuition is, like the set of knowledge postulated in the examination, exclusively determined by the needs of the discipline and medical practice. In the first place it provides such knowledge of Latin and/or Greek as enables the student to master quickly and purposefully the semantic aspect of terms, their grammatical form, and word-forming structure. Simultaneously it provides systematic instruction to independent solution of current terminological problems consisting in understanding of the technical content of the terms and in the formation of medical terms. Besides this it opens a view of the wider historical and linguistic fundamentals of medical terminology as well as its general theoretical contexts.
