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

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. Guidance for OET (Occupational English Test), combined with a study plan, can be included for those planning to sit the test. For further information about the test, go to the OET website

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
