Medical English


Our Medical English language courses are designed for medical professionals and university students who wish to improve their English language skills in a specific context.

We run a 3-week course in January and an intensive 2 week programme in July. If you cannot commit to either of these dates, you could try a combination of General English for 24 lessons per week and an additional 4 lessons of Medical English

Medical English

If you are a healthcare professional or university student and you want to improve your English language skills in a context relevant to your career, this is the course for you. 

For those working in a medical field, it is important to be highly accurate and clear in their communication but they also need to be able to show tact and sensitivity. During the course you will develop these English language skills in a variety of contexts. This will help you increase your confidence when communicating with patients and their families as well as with colleagues.

By the end of the course, you will have:

  • Studied the language of medicine in various contexts
  • Learned to communicate effectively with patients and colleagues
  • Increased your awareness of specialised terminology
  • Analysed real case scenarios
  • Learned how to deal with challenging situations
  • Visited one of London’s excellent hospital museums
  • Had tutorials with your teacher to discuss your progress and future plans

This course follows our standard timetable of 24 lessons per week/20 hours per week.
