hello, i am totally new to this site and am not sure if i am posting correctly but here goes. I am nearing the end of my at home studies and am in need of placing some roots down for doing reports as employment. The school does not directly answer the question for me on this. Now i am not asking for quiz answers i am simply searching a way to establish doing reports. I have all my material at my finger tips if i need them but i am REALLY struggling with research. If as dr sites a term that i cannot grasp what is the best way to finding out what he says. I have been googling what i think is being said, then spend hrs on end and still being wrong. After research techniques, I struggle with knowing what the dr is doing-if i don't know what is being done even generally, i cannot know how to or what to research for the right term. I really appreciate some help in this i feel totally that i need input from student and not instructor...can anyone out there help? I will listen to any advise rendered. Thank you in advance for the support wavey

Welcome Nan!

The program you are studying should make people available who can answer these questions for you. You should have had an intensive course in medical terminology and anatomy and physiology. The latter would help you pinpoint the area of the body, which would be of help in your research. There are some terms that you are going to need help with, regardless of thoroughly researching.

The instructors are there to help you, so make use of them. It's their job to ensure that you succeed in the program.

Good luck!

thank you for responding to my question. I understand the role of the instructor, being one myself. They are truly "there for me" but when it comes to getting direct answers...it never happens...hence my reason for coming here. I am still not getting the direct answers that i need to become a better transcriptionist. my question remains unanswered n more questions are piling up as i continue struggling.researching almost always requires a base to build on. when a dr is speaking in an unknown tongue you may know its got something to do with the stomach (for example) but how to narrow down the unknown term into the correct term is what i am after. referring me to flash cards...term not there...referring me to internet...term i think is being spoken is not there...refer me to the text book...not in dictionary or anywhere else in my school material...so hence my frustration where do i look next and how do i find that which i am so desirous to find? Saying "you just have to listen" doesn't work all the time although it has helped some. the term i am specifically looking for? well help...ANY IDEAS???

Nan --

Check this forum for my posts with good internet links:
http://www.mtgab.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/forums/18/1/Medical_Resource_Reference.html

My other suggestion is that when you have a phrase -- adjective noun -- (perforated appendix for example), and can't understand the adjective, look up the noun in your dictionary -- medical dictionaries often list adjectives that commonly go with the nouns.

Sorry I didn't respond earlier...
happy wednesday

thanks for the input although lingo is still foreign to me. Since this posting i did find out one thing that the medical dictionary is already outdated soooo, perhaps that is why I have found not one term in it, Hmmm. I must be doing something wrong, deadly wrong when i can spend 50 bucks on an outdated book already four years old. thank again.
