Book Description

Today’s students have expressed a strong preference for multiple modes of information delivery, including visual, auditory and kinesthetic. Medical Terminology Doodles by Dr. Karen Sladyk is a unique book based on evidence that suggests that a multi-sensory approach that includes doodling can promote better knowledge retention than traditional methods in learning medical terminology.

Medical Terminology Doodles offers 266 of the most common medical terms to explore and learn through doodling. By drawing or doodling related images, students will create permanent connections between the brain and the terms, as well as their root words, prefixes, and suffixes. Study hints, spelling hints, and sample illustrations are offered for each of the words, but students are also encouraged to personalize their learning by assigning meaning to the terms and creating their own “art.” Using visual cues to remember information will encourage students to review the material at hand and will also help them understand the way that terms connect to larger medical concepts. 

Medical Terminology Doodles is a must-have for students looking for a unique manner in which to engage with complicated scientific material. On the road to becoming a successful practitioner in the health professions, you can never underestimate the power of a doodle!
