Medical Terminology

You are a front office medical assistant. A second front office medical assistant is going to be hired, and you have been asked by the office manager to help her screen job applicants for the position. The office manager asks you to put together a short written test that the applicant will take after his/her interview. Even though there will be on-the-job training, the office manager wants to make sure the candidate has a basic knowledge of medical terminology upon which to build.

Using external resources and medical terms not included in this lesson, develop a 6 question test that assesses the candidate's ability to identify a root, suffix, and prefix; write the meaning of each of those; and define the medical term. Put the answers in a separate table on this document. Using proper APA format, please cite the sources for your responses.
