Medical English for Doctors

This online English for Doctors course enables medical students to learn the English they need to complete their studies and engage with the international healthcare sector.

The course takes a medical student through the patient journey, from admission to interview, diagnosis, treatment, surgery and end-of-life care. The units cover medical terminology, patient and staff interactions, hospital language and much more.

Students work on all aspects of medical language, including pronunciation, grammar and functional skills. The course is regularly reviewed so the content is always relevant and up to date.

The course can be used both in the classroom and as complementary study. Teachers and institutions receive detailed course notes with answers, lesson suggestions and audio and video transcripts.
