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 and carers. Units in the courses include medical terminology, hospital- and care-specific scenarios, patient and colleague interactions, 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.
How are the courses used?
All learners receive an access code. They can log into the courses wherever they are online.
Can the courses be ‘white-labelled’ and customised for healthcare employers?
Yes. We create your space on the Learning Management System with your branding and colours, so your students see the courses as an integral part of the training you provide.
As courses are digital, units can be rearranged and adapted to meet your priorities. We can add company documents such as staff handbooks.
Can you track what learners do?
Yes. With your login, you can see how much your learners have done and how successfully.
Are the courses CPD-accredited?
Yes. The courses are all accredited by the CPD Standards Office in the UK. CPD accreditation is recognised internationally as a mark of quality for courses around the world. Each learner receives a CPD-stamped certificate on course completion clearly stating the CPD points they have learned.
What platform do you use?
We work with Avallain AG, the industry-leading educational technology company working with global language publishers such as Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press and National Geographic Learning. The platform is constantly updated to give students the best learning experience.
Who writes the courses?
The courses are written by both industry-leading authors (link to authors page – to be created) and experienced English language professionals. They combine a strong understanding of the healthcare sector with a rigorous approach to language acquisition. They are academically strong, based on extensive research and regularly reviewed to keep up to date.
