Medical English 2 (B2/C1)

Rasch, Uwe

This course is designed to provide the prospective medical practitioner with basic medical and psychiatric vocabulary for the purpose of communicating skilfully with peers in the respective field. The general objective is to help professional students develop the ability to read and understand the language of medicine. The primary focus of the course is to promote a knowledge of the differences between British/American and German usage and spelling of medical terminology and medical vs. common English terms, and the understanding of standard abbreviations. The focus will therefore be on reading (and listening) comprehension, aided by writing and speaking. There will be a written test at the end of the course.
