English for Medical Purposes:Doctors

The language needed by overseas doctors to communicate in English to patients and colleagues in a healthcare environment. Includes patient interview,examining patient, discussing treatment,talking about tests and procedures.

 Doctors need to ensure that they can communicate well with their patients so that a safe healthcare environment and optimum treatment is provided. Excellence in verbal and non-verbal communication is essential as well as an appreciation of the cultural factors which influence recovery from illness.

Most English-speaking countries test the language skills of incoming Healthcare Professionals before allowing registration on a professional roll. As well as the registration requirement of adequate language competency, there is an expectation under the Code of Practice and the Code of Ethics that doctors are able to communicate well in English with patients and colleagues so misunderstandings regarding treatment, which may have dangerous results, are avoided.
