Medicine for medical translators – series of 8 webinars
Each webinar includes a summary of the language used to describe and discuss the anatomy, the physiology, the pathology, and the diagnosis and therapy of each system. Further, each webinar includes a disambiguation of key terms relating to every section, as well as key concepts in that field. We show some examples below. When we mention specific concepts (e.g, “bronchiectasis”) or body parts (e.g., “stapes”) we will address the corresponding translation challenges.
Each session will be divided into four parts:
- Normal function (physiology)
- The diseases (pathology)
- Diagnosis and therapy
