LATIN COURSE FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS

The Course of Latin and the Basics of Medical Terminology takes up two semesters in the first year of study. At the end of each semester the students get the credit.

The objectives of the course are:

  • To help the students to develop linguistic competence sufficient for a correct usage of medical terms of Greek and Latin origin.
  • To help the students to overcome problems occurring in the course of communication, and also to facilitate the process of adaptation of foreign students to a new social environment.

The skills necessary for that are:

  • Reading and writing in Latin.
    • Translating medical terms (anatomical, clinical and pharmaceutical ones) from English into Latin and from Latin into English.
    • Learning grammatical peculiarities of medical terms (declension of nouns, agreement between nouns and adjectives, verb forms, government of prepositions, numerals, pronouns, and adverbs).
    • Forming an active vocabulary of 900 lexical and word-forming units (non-derived and derived Latin terms, Greek roots and affixes).
    • Determining the general meaning of Latin terminological elements and constructing clinical terms according to productive models.
    • Writing prescriptions in Latin.
    • Forming names of chemical compounds in Latin (oxides, acids, salts).
      • Singling out frequency segments in drug nominations bearing specific standard information about the drug.
