The Guide offers an introduction to Basic Medical Terminology on a level and in accordance with requirements of the university programmes of dentistry and general medicine in the Czech Republic. The course reflects local specifics of the Czech medical environment, most notably its strong focus on Latin grammar. The Guide consists of two parts, one for each semester. However, the first section is to certain extent self-contained and as such it can be used by students of one-term courses (dentistry), while the second one is supposed to serve as an independent addition necessary only for students of general medicine.
