Free Medical Terminology Practice Test: Fractures

Fractures, or broken bones, can occur in many different manners and may appear and a variety of forms. This free medical terminology practice test can serve as a great review on the basic terms for fracture types. Some of the terms for broken bones have names to which we might relate, such as the greenstick fracture, in which one might imagine trying to break a stick that is green that breaks on one side and not the other. Others may be a bit more challenging!

How to use this practice test
  1. Click on the first flash card to enlarge.
  2. Click on the next thumbnail at the bottom of the screen to advance to the next slide.
Each main type of fracture is described with four possible answers. The slide immediately following each gives the correct answer.

I hope you enjoy using this review on types of fractures and visit my Student Survive 2 Thrive site map for more great educational resources!
