On an additional morning the certificate test will take place. It’ll last about 3 lessons, depending on the number of participants.

You have the possibility to take the certificate test at the end of the course. If you pass it successfully, you will receive a certificate which you can enclose with future applications or include in salary negotiations. Each participant will receive a course confirmation.

The Specialized Medical English Course builds on the basic knowledge of the General Course. By attending this basic course first you can grow into the medical terminology. The Spezialized Course is then optimally applicable in practice as a further specification.

Self-study, such as learning the vocabulary, is important to achieve the course goal and to enjoy communicating in medical English.
