NEYTS, D. en VERGUTS, C. (2014): English for Medical Practitioners. Not only for emergencies, Gent: Academia Press.

As a medical practitioner, be it a general physician, specialist, medical student, nurse, dentist or physiotherapist, you have the professional medical skills to deal with patients, colleagues and health institutions. However, you may to some extent lack the language skills to accurately and effectively do so in English, and want to improve your English communication proficiency, e.g. because you have patients for whom English is your only common language, or because you plan to train or work in an international setting.

This book focuses on the language and communication skills you need. It aims at improving your English proficiency, thus enhancing your confidence and effectiveness in medical interactions. The course will train you how to communicate in English in a wide range of situations, based on authentic professional contexts.
