What You Should Expect from A Good On-Line School:

  1. The school should teach you medical terms by instructing you as to the root of the word as well as suffixes and prefixes;
  2. You should learn about the various systems of the body, in example the digestive system, nervous system, lymphatic system, circulatory system, etc.;
  3. You should learn about various diseases and their processes;
  4. You should receive training in order to become familiar with medical abbreviations, diagnostic tests and pharmacology;
  5. You’ll need to learn the correct layout of documents;
  6. You should be expected to apply what you are learning by practical application: the best schools should expect a level of competency from you before allowing you to graduate from their training program;
  7. Look for schools that provide work experience and work placement assistance after course completion.
