There is no question that medical coding can be a challenge and difficult to learn at times. But there are ways to make it more exciting!

And there is no reason why medical coding students cannot benefit from them as well.
Crossword puzzles can help you learn such topics as medical terminology and anatomy and give you a good grasp of medical coding concepts.
Did you know?
Research shows that PowerPoint lectures provided in most medical schools all over the world:
- are a passive way to learn
- boring to students
- provide less retention of information and less motivation in learning
It’s TRUE, according to the International Journal of Research in Medical Sciences.
Studies also show that incorporating active learning activities such as games and puzzles result in much more effective stimulation of the students’ cognitive functions.
There are so many ways to learn and take in information. Crossword puzzles appeal to visual learners, as well as auditory and kinesthetic learners.
