Individual course medical French
The course in Medical French is an intensive course (37,5 hours) regarding the medical language in medical professional situations. It is intended for non-French speakers who have a medical profession and are or will be working in France. For every profession, there is a course that focuses on that speciality.
The prerequisite for this course is at least level A2 of the CEFR.
The course gets its final set-up based on the specific needs of the student, sometimes in consultation with the employer. Some students want to practice job interviews or a conversation with for example 'l'Ordre des Médecins'. Others prefer to work on their written French.
Will be dealt with during classes:
- The most frequent consultations (role-playing)
- Communication with colleagues (interdisciplinary meetings, teamwork in the operating room, transfer of files)
- Preparation for the interview with ‘le Conseil de l'Ordre des Médecins’ (if necessary)
- Important topics related to practice in France: the French health system, regulations (ethics, medical secrecy) and interculturality in the practice of a medical profession in France
