Medical English courses for healthcare employers

SLC’s online Medical English courses are perfect for international medical professionals who need to improve the English they use in the workplace to ensure safe and effective practice.

The courses focus on the language used by specific professions, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, radiographers, and carers.

Units in the courses include medical terminology, hospital- and care-specific scenarios, patient and colleague communication, and the more extensive language required to read research or listen to talks.

The courses are up to date, reflect current practice and are highly engaging, using the multi-media tools that today’s learners expect.

The courses are all CPD-accredited and certificated and delivered on a branded, organisation-specific learning platform, They can be taken seamlessly on any device, including mobile phones via the course app.
