Cíle předmětu
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.
Výstupy z učení
At the end of the course students should be able to:
- use Latin and Greek-Latin medical terminology and expressions correctly and understand them;
- recognize and explain grammatical devices and rules relevant for acquisition of Greek-Latin medical terminology;
- explain syntactic structure of complex terms;
- recognize the semantic structure of selected anatomical and clinical one-word terms;
- form compound words applying the most used word-formation principles;
- translate selected expressions from anatomy and pre-clinical and clinical fields of study.
