Abstracts
Each student will find abstracts of articles related to the medical terminology for chapters 3 to 14. You will need one abstract for each chapter. The article abstract should be from reputable medical journals. Articles from Wikipedia and non-professional websites are not acceptable.
Use a library electronic database to find an abstract from a peer-reviewed healthcare journal (e.g., JAMA) related to any pathology, diagnosis, or treatment found in the textbook chapter(s).  Highlight terms that you will analyze using the Analysis Table. A total of 10 different medical terms must be analyzed for prefix, combining form, suffix and definition for each word part. Turn in a print copy of the highlighted abstract and the completed analysis table at the class session you attend.
