Wimbledon School of English launches Medical English course


From January 2016, Wimbledon School of English (WSE) will be running a full time Medical English course.
Until now the school has only offered this course on demand for closed groups or as one-to-one lessons. WSE has also been running "English for Medical Purposes" as an optional course that can be studied in conjunction with our standard courses. "The feedback from students so far has been excellent so we felt it was time to run a full time course which is suitable for individual enrolments," explains Kieran Hayde, Sales, Marketing and Groups Manager.

Following a successful pilot group earlier this year, WSE will run two Medical English courses per year, in January and July. The course has been designed for medical professionals and university students who are already part way through a medicine degree. For those working in a medical field, it is so important to be clear and accurate in their communication but they also need to be able to show tact and sensitivity. This course will help them develop these English language skills in a variety of medical contexts. There will also be a strong emphasis on medical terminology. "We hope this will help increase their confidence when communicating with patients, their families and fellow colleagues," says Hayde.

Students will also have the option to prepare for the Occupational English Test (OET) as part of the guided self-study programme offered at Wimbledon School of English. OET is a healthcare-specific English language test designed for practitioners wishing to test their English language proficiency.
