MEDICAL ENGLISH INTENSIVE TRAINING

Perché scegliere un corso di Inglese Medico?

La conoscenza della lingua inglese è, in campo medico, un’esigenza sempre più pressante per i professionisti​​

Il corso intensivo è uno degli strumenti più efficaci per imparare, attivare e ricordare quanto appreso.

Tramite questo corso i partecipanti potranno ampliare il proprio vocabolario medico ed effettuare esperienze pratiche tramite simulazioni connesse alla relazione medico – paziente e all’analisi di casi di studio.
