Medical English has a large vocabulary seldom used in general English, and not all of which is available in a general dictionary.

I will move your post over to that forum, where you may ask further questions.

There's no difference in the grammar.
Dear Sir or Madam

I am a new English teacher for medical students. But I have some problems I mean I don't have ane experience to teach them. Can you send me some tips how to make my class fun and good.

Yours sincerely
Sunjee
A monumental task Sunjee, that would be impossible to undertake thru cyberspace. To start, I'd look for a highly interactive textbook.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Teach them as you would teach any other adult ESL/EFL students, Sunjee. They will be able to supply the specialized vocabulary themselves, I think, from their medical textbooks.
The grammar is the same, although the passive voice is more frequently (perhaps too much so) in technical writing. Find some copies of medical journals and read the articles to get a feel for the tone, even if you don't understand the specialist vocabulary employed. As Mister Micawber said, your students should be able to supply the vocabulary and understand the meanings. You may, however, have a better feel for the correct intonation and stress of the words than your students.
As a student of Biology I can't give any advice regarding teaching of english, medical or otherwise.

However, what aeon suggested seems like a good idea to me. Whenever I need to familiarise myself with a topic I havn't yet covered, the 'Review' articles in journals have helped me. In that they tend to introduce the most prevalent technical terms of a topic in context, whilst also giving a robust definition at the point the term is first used.

The problem is; journals are great if you have access to them, but unless you're a member of a university library you usually have to pay for subscription.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
