What Youll Learn

Designed for medical professionals, this program will provide you with the medical English terminology, listening and speaking skills required to communicate effectively with patients and other medical professionals. In each certificate, you will learn new terminology that you will put into practice by exploring medical case studies and describing patient conditions. Depending on your professional background, role-plays can be adapted to meet your individual learning objectives and needs.

Each certificate is four-weeks long. You will earn a Certificate in Medical English for each session you complete, and if you complete all three certificates (12 weeks), you will receive the Medical English Diploma. It is not necessary to complete these certificates sequentially, which gives you the flexibility to enter into the program at the start of any new session.
