Hello everybody!

I am James , from Viet Nam. I am a teacher of English in English & Computer Department of KG Medical College.

This year I am teaching medical English for our students. They are nurses, pharmacists, traditional doctors. They are trained for 2-3 years.

Now I am wondering what I should teach; how I prepare a courses; and something like that.

Please tell me something.

Thank you so much.

Hi James

My name is Alex and I´m starting a similar project here in Brazil. Maybe we could exchange some information about the subject. Last year I had the oportunity to run a workshop aimed to help health professionals to deal with vocab and lectures they have to attend in their carrers. There is a book, "English for Medicine" edited by Cambridge university press that is excelent. Maybe you could check it to help you.

best regards

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

Hi James,

May I suggest you have a look at Talking Medicine where you will find material you can use to teach medical English. The material is copyright but you can get permission to use it free by using the contact form on the site.

Good luck


Try the books by Melodie Hull in Canada. She writes workbooks for nurses and doctors. Just 'google' her name or try Clayton International Consulting .

Have you looked at UBELT? I am a European (Polish) Pharmacist and have made the test, it has advises for different medical professions including pharmacy and doctors. I hear the test and teaching might soon go to China so maybe Viet Nam to. Best wishes, Przemyslaw.
