Identify the Prefix or Suffix

This set of medical terminology slides features 15 terms in which the reader is asked to identify either the prefix or suffix word part. The answer is revealed on the slide that follows the question. Being able to identify and understand the meaning for prefixes and suffixes can greatly help one to understand medical terms, even when those words seem longer than the credits at the end of a blockbuster movie!

Directions
  1. Click on the first slide to enlarge.
  2. Click on either the slide or thumbnail at the bottom to advance to the next slide.
