Now on its 9th edition, Davi-Ellen Chabner's The Language of Medicine, 9e continues to be one of the most recommended resources for incoming medical students who need to learn the field's jargon quickly and effectively. Known for its direct and non-technical approach to explaining medical terminologies, this dependable and comprehensive reference is easy to understand; in fact, even learners without previous scientific background will find it useful. It introduces the reader to the fundamentals of the human digestive, nervous, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems. In this edition, the author rearranged the chapters according to systems of the body as they are normally examined. The latter parts of the book discuss general oncology or cancer medicine, nuclear medicine, pharmacology, and psychiatry. Often described as a ‘comprehensive medical dictionary,' the Language of Medicine, 9e by Davi-Ellen Chabner (ISBN 9781437705706) now comes with a CD that teaches students proper pronunciation while enhancing their proficiency in identifying parts of different bodily systems, from the musculoskeletal to the reproductive. It contains real-life accounts and case studies, as well as realistic sample medical report exercises and charts that students can analyze and interpret to apply what they have learned. It has also been updated with pictures (all in full color) that underpin all the pathophysiological and anatomical terms, showing students some of the actual cases they are likely to encounter in real-life practice. Instructors will appreciate the labeling exercises (proven effective) and excellent diagrams that encourage active learning, as well as the special instructor's manual and CD.
