Medicine is suitable for junior and trainee doctors, and advanced nurses, who need to communicate in English with patients and colleagues. The course presents students with English from a variety of medical fields, develops their communication skills, and provides background information in to key medical and care concepts.
Medicine teaches students specialist medical terminology for effective communication with colleagues. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine, the world's best-selling medical handbook, provides a backdrop to the course, and is referenced throughout.
The syllabus for Medicine is based on the communication skills for OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) which assesses students' clinical communication skills in context. The 'Patient Care' section teaches students how to convey instructions to patients and their relatives in a sympathetic and clear way, especially if dealing with sensitive matters.
'It's my job' sections offer students an insight into the lives of real people who work in medicine. The profiles are based on authentic interviews and sources, and teach students about the skills required for different medical environments.
The course supports teachers in the vocational teaching situation, providing them with specialist background information for the medical industry.
The 'Signs and Symptoms' section focuses on common diseases and conditions that are relevant to a specific unit. This provides students with the necessary vocabulary for describing common signs of illness. Listening and speaking skills are particularly emphasised and practised in Medicine 2, as these are essential for doctor-patient relations.
