According to a recent report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, job opportunities in healthcare are abundant. The healthcare industry currently provides more than 14 million jobs and it is projected to generate 3 million additional positions through 2016, more than any other industry (bls.gov/oco/cg/cgs035.htm).
To give students a boost into today’s largest job market, Gatlin Education Services now offers a Medical Terminology online training course. The 60-hour class is designed to give healthcare professionals and those who wish to work in medical environments a deeper understanding of medical words and meanings.
Available at gatlineducation.com/medical_terminology_course.html, Gatlin’s nationally-recognized course teaches students to identify and apply proper terminology and spelling for major pathological conditions. Online lessons explain the medical terms used for various areas of the body including the integumentary, respiratory, nervous, reproductive, endocrine, urinary, digestive, lymphatic, hematic, immune and musculoskeletal systems. In addition, students will be able to define and describe the function of the body’s different systems as well as compare and contrast each one.
“Today’s healthcare providers look for qualified professionals who can communicate clearly and effectively to both patients and practitioners,” said Stephen Gatlin, founder of Fort Worth-based Gatlin Education Services. “Having knowledge of medical terminology is necessary for any job in the industry – from medical receptionist to pharmacy technician.”
