Become fluent in medical terminology

Med Term Speak & Spell

Being fluent in a language means being able to read, write, and converse clearly and accurately. With Med Term Speak & Spell, we take the same approach to learning medical terminology — the foundational building block of a safe, successful career in healthcare.

You can interact with Speak & Spell in various ways — from viewing an associated image and hearing the pronunciation, to recording and playing back your own pronunciation. You can repeat these exercises as many times as you’d like.
