English for Medical Professionals
Located in British
Columbia, Canada, the Vancouver Medical English Institute (VMEI) offers
in English as a Second Language designed for Medical Professionals.
These courses are
offered both at the Vancouver campus of the Institute and as an
program in your own country.
Using the methods and unique
developed by Pikku Vichert, the courses
are concentrated on the use of English in a
medical context. They teach both the language and culturally appropriate
communication skills for practicing medical careers in an English speaking
VMEI understands that
medical professionals need to make the best possible use of their limited
time and therefore it has designed courses that produce results as quickly as
possible. All Medical
English courses are limited to a maximum of four
students per class. This allows students effective interaction and provides
ample opportunity for individual attention.
The school has a
modern language laboratory and a library with subscriptions to
medical periodicals and daily newspapers. The lounge is a comfortable centre for
contact between students and teachers. It has a microwave, fridge,
espresso maker and other facilities to help students enjoy their lunch and
conversation (only in English please).
