CRN 45050

From the Instructor:
Please consider that this is a 4-credit class and will require regular log-in and studying. This course will be using Desire2Learn (D2L), the Learning Management Software at PCC that is used to deliver online courses. To login to your course, please go to: and click on the Desire2Learn login link under the 'Quick Links' on the left of your MyPCC homepage. A required self-introduction is assigned in the D2L Discussion forum. It is due by noon on Friday of the FIRST WEEK. Students that do not complete this by the deadline are subject to being dropped from the course. Students must register their text at the publisher's web site, MyMedicalTerminologyLab (MyLab). That is where much of the coursework is done. This requires getting a current text with an access code that allows you to enroll in MyLab. This is explained below.
Course Specific Requirements:
I recommend getting your books early. Find them at the PCC Bookstore online (1) REQUIRED TEXT & TEXTBOOK ONLINE RESOURCE: Medical Language, 3rd ed.(hard copy or e-text) by Susan M. Turley. Please make sure that you purchase the 3rd ed of Medical Language and NOT the 2nd ed. When you purchase a new textbook, get the VALUE PACK which has access to the required My Lab online resource. If you get a used textbook you must purchase a My Lab access code online for $55, or $85 with an E-text. (2) Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary, F.A. Davis publisher (or other reputable medical dictionary).
