Whether you are a student or practicing physician, the MedWord Master app will help you build a strong foundation in the spelling and definitions of almost 3000 medical vocabulary words. This app's innovative learning model focuses exclusively on the Greek and Latin prefixes, suffixes, and roots frequently found in medical terminology. Training with the MedWord Master app will unlock the meaning and spelling of medical terms that you have never seen or used before by establishing a strong core knowledge of the key components of these technical terms. The combination of audio cues and visual interaction make learning intuitive and fun.
The multiple choice "meaning" mode is designed to promote learning and testing of the medical term definitions. The "spelling" mode will test your ability to spell medical vocabulary. For each answer you provide, the app offers feedback that promotes learning by displaying other words and definitions that are related to the current medical term.
The medical vocabulary is categorized anatomically allowing you to focus your training and learning per body region or organ system. Additional information for each category is provided in the 90 group tutorials that are included with the app.
Powerful reporting features allow you to track your learning and progress. The reports analyze your success and also highlight which words and groups merit additional attention to meet your learning goals.
Dr. Mary DeForest (PhD, Classics: University of Colorado) teaches Latin, New Testament Greek, and medical terminology at Regis University and the University of Colorado at Denver.
What's New in Version 1.2
Bug fixes and improvements.
Really great for learning those roots!
Although the method is a little tedious and the tutorials could use a bit of editing for format/clarity/typos, this is essentially the only app out there if you’re serious about learning your medical roots. Despite any shortcomings, I have given it 5 stars because it is the most comprehensive latin/greek root app on the current market, it runs quickly and seamlessly, and using the “meaning" quizzes repetitively has significantly improved my understanding of the biological sciences, especially anatomy. I would enthusiastically recommend this app for anyone about to start medical school or any other biology-based studies.
5 STARS when the bug is fixed!
for this very very effective way to learn medical words however, how unbelievably annoying it is that it crashes in the middle of quizzes EVERY TIME the harassing "rate me" box presents. No, it doesn't crash as punishment for "rating later" , it crashes regardless of the option chosen.
Update: thank you for the bug fix! Suggestion: enable scoring for more than user.
No bugs here on 5.1.1, 1st Gen iPad
Right, glad to see the air was cleared. No, if you want medical etymology, or have any interest in nursing, radiology, getting an MD, or medical coding, et. al., this is a very fine app, and worth far more than the piffling price charged. Thank you, Chronos Interactive. iTunes customers and anyone interested in medicine or healthcare, buy this in full confidence.
