Medical Assisting Student Develops Unique Medical Terminology Study Method
Posted: Friday, May 28, 2010
Medical Assisting Student Maria Rodriguez at Virginia College's Huntsville, Alabama, campus has developed a fun and interesting way to help study medical terminology, a requirement for her curriculum. Her instructor, Zonia Likkel, encouraged the students to simply be creative for their class projects. The only parameters were that they be related to the medical field.
Maria's project is a Wheel of Fortune, based on the long-running television game show, and consisted of moving parts and reusable word boxes. Maria finished her project two weeks ahead of schedule to make sure it was available to be used for the school's regular quarterly fun night. This student also volunteered her time to help out another medical class by allowing the students to interview her in Spanish as part of their course of study.
