Digestive system Study Guide April

Here is a collection of medical term or medical word parts that you should memorize. It is not a complete list. I don’t know what will be on your test, but I have seen these words come up almost every year. They are from your packet. In addition, you should learn number of teeth in the mouth, parts of the small and large intestine, what the gallbladder does. Also, review your GI Packet. Know these words and break them apart to know the word parts. Make cards for sure.
