Medical English

Do you work as a medical professional in an internationally oriented institution? Does your work involve communicating with English-speaking patients or colleagues? Do you want to improve your English language skills and gain a better understanding of the cultural differences that influence doctor-patient communication? Or are you preparing for a medical internship or a career in an English-speaking country?

Our tailor-made Medical English course will help you improve your written and verbal communication with English-speaking patients and colleagues and help to familiarise you with English culture in a medical context.

Medical English

This course was designed for all healthcare professionals who interact with English-speaking patients, colleagues or partners in their daily work. The course can be taken individually or as a group.

Structure and form

If several colleagues wish to participate in the course, they will be divided into groups based on their English proficiency, as determined by the Oxford Online Placement Test (OOPT).

Participants can expect to spend approximately two hours per session on self-study.

The course has a strong practical focus and participants are encouraged to propose examples from their daily experiences.
