Medical Terminology

Cut through the jargon and understand what the medics and scientists are talking about. It's a lot easier to enjoy your work and do it well if you know what's going on! The whole point of words is to pass on ideas clearly, but it often doesn’t work that way in drug development teams! The technical terms used by scientists, physicians, project managers, statisticians and regulatory experts frequently leave outsiders baffled. This one-day course aims to cut through the jargon and give staff from a clerical or administrative background the opportunity to understand that the medics and scientists are talking about. The aim is not just to provide a “walking dictionary” but to explain how the words came to be made up and the way in which they hang together as a sensible system. Once you understand the basics, everything is actually much easier than it at first appears. The course should be of benefit to all secretarial and administrative staff working in pharmaceutical companies either as part of scientific departments or within support groups. The teaching style is conversational rather than classroom and there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions and discuss individual interests.
