Learning Objectives

This website is intended to supplement traditional textbook, classroom and clinical training by providing interactive drills to strengthen long-term retention of medical terms. Our objectives for users:

  • Long term retention of medical terms using spaced repetition learning.
  • Understanding of medical prefixes, suffixes and roots.
  • User selection of medical areas for study by body system.

Please note that this website is in 'beta' testing. Not all features have been deployed.


Users are presented with medical terms in a variety of ways. A spaced repetition algorithm is used to make learning medical terms efficient by managing how frequently each term is presented to the user. Users can select terms by body systems for study.
