Take a Medical Terminology Class

For instance, patients who wish to take steps toward a better understanding of the language used by doctors or dentists may want to read the American Journal of Medicine or the Journal of Clinical Dentistry, respectively.

While this type of learning is not for everyone, it is definitely a good option for those who are competent internet users.
