New Course: Reach OET B Medicine

SLC is delighted to announce the release of its latest online Medical English course, Reach OET B Medicine.

Reach OET B Medicine is a 50-hour course, specially designed for doctors who want to achieve Grade B in the international Occupational English Test (OET). Following the GMC announcement in February this year, OET is now accepted as proof that doctors wishing to work in the UK have the requisite English language skills to work in an English-speaking environment.

In addition to the GMC, the OET is also accepted for doctors by medical regulatory bodies in Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Dubai among others.

Reach OET B Medicine focuses on the language, test techniques and strategies that doctors need to score a grade B. It analyses each paper in detail, includes plenty of video and audio, and gives multiple examples of test questions and answers.

Either taken as a standalone course or in conjunction with either 1:1 OET coaching or SLC’s English for Doctors course, Reach OET B Medicine will enable doctors to enter the OET test centre with confidence.

Reach OET B for Doctors and Nurses

Reach OET B Medicine joins Reach OET B Nursing in SLC’s portfolio. Together, and in conjunction with SLC’s portfolio of Medical English and Exam Preparation courses, SLC offers individuals and healthcare providers with a range of courses that can successfully support international recruitment.

‘In a time of significant shortages across the UK healthcare sector, we’re delighted to be able to help much-needed doctors and nurses gain the English qualifications they need to work in the UK and deliver the safe and effective care required of them.’ Chris Moore, Managing Director, SLC.

September Changes

Both Reach OET B Medicine and Nursing are being updated to include the changes coming into place in the OET test from September 2018.

‘We wanted to ensure that the courses were able to be updated in time for the changes. It’s vital we can support medical professionals both now and in the future. The online format enables us to react quickly and flexibly to any changes in the testing landscape.’ Virginia Allum, Head of Medical English, SLC.
