Welcome to Medical Terminology and the NBHS Allied Health Program. My name is Mrs.
Keehn. I have been a nurse for 16 years. My background is in Neonatal Nursing and Family and
Community education. I have taught the Allied Health Program for 2 years in the Jefferson
County Public School System. In my spare time I also work for Norton Healthcare as a family
and community educator which allows me to stay up to date on current healthcare information. I
have been married to my husband Robert for 21 years and we have 3 boys, two of which are
students here at North. I am excited to go on this journey with you learning about what it means
to work in the healthcare industry. I look forward to our time together where we will learn a lot
and hopefully have fun while we do it!
Course Description:
Medical Terminology is a study of anatomical, physiological, and pathological terminology with
emphasis on word structures and definition of root words, suffixes, and prefixes from Greek and
Latin. Additional emphasis is placed on spelling and pronunciation. The primarily designed for
individuals preparing for a career in health care. No previous knowledge of Greek or Latin is
required. The purpose of this course is to teach the student the meanings of 350 Latin and
Greek elements, or word parts. The knowledge of the 350 elements in this course will enable
the student to interpret and understand more than ten thousand complex medical terms .The
audio-visual portion of this program teaches a simplified meaning for each of the elements. The
text includes an expansion of these meanings and demonstrates the various forms in which they
may appear in the medical field.
Required Texts/Materials: Dean Vaughn Medical Terminology 350, Damon/Instructional
system. (Additional text TBA)
Expectations:
I have very high expectations for YOU! Professional Behavior is required at all times in this
class. I will not tolerate disrespectful or disruptive behavior. I do not expect everyone to be a
medical expert, but I do expect that they will be challenged and do their VERY best. Attendance
is imperative to success in this class as each lesson builds on the next. We will use many video
presentations to help with memorization of terms. If you are absent for any reason you will not
be able to make up any video presentations that are done in class. You will need to check out a
book or go online and read the material on your own time to get what you missed. You will also
be responsible for getting any assignments and lecture notes that are missed. Make up work will
be per school and district policy. I will have make-up work files in a designated area in the room.
