|COMMUNICATE MORE EFFECTIVELY AND WITH GREATER CONFIDENCE.
Dolphin Medical English language courses
Dolphin language provides a complete learning experience for medical students, doctors, pharmacists and nurses who hope to study medicine in English in order to develop in an English speaking country, or the pursuit of a health professional career. The English medical class goal is to develop language skills and interpersonal skills essential to establishing and maintaining relationships between doctors and patients, allowing doctors to perform their duties more effectively and confidently in English.
The course covers the main stages of medical communication, from the initial case-taking, medical examination, investigation, diagnosis, coupled with the medical and surgical treatment. Lessons describe the general English vocabulary and functional language, style elements relevant to students and registered in the medical books, and medical terminology in English grammar and speech components found.
Although the process does allow the use of medical communication model, and as a learner, you will be encouraged to call on your doctor’s expertise, but should be noted that the purpose of this course is to teach medicine and medical practice. Similarly, the teacher will act as a facilitator in English and communication skills and experts, rather than experts in medicine.
