A Briefing Paper for Healthcare Training and Recruitment Professionals

Both IELTS (International English Language Testing System) and OET (Occupational English Test) are used to test the English language of healthcare professionals in different parts of the world.

They are chosen by regulatory bodies to ensure doctors, nurses and other professions have sufficient language skills to communicate at a high level with patients and colleagues, and so ensure safe and effective care.

This briefing looks at the two tests and compares them. As a result, healthcare training and recruitment professionals will be able to make better and more informed decisions when looking at which test is most appropriate for the health professionals they work with where the two options are available.
