Program contents

The International Summer Program for Medical English, supervised by the University of Leicester, celebrates its 17th year in 2022 and is the longest-held medical English program in the UK with more than 500 medical students from all over the world to date. is.
This program usually includes two day trips in three weeks, hospitals,GPs (family doctors), hospice tours, welcome dinners, farewell dinners, and more, as well as academic activities. It's a very fulfilling program. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to judge the status of new corona infections around the world in the summer at this point, so there are some undecided parts regarding hospital-related tours, but other classes, social activities, and day trips. Will be held in Leicester, England, as it was originally.
 
The lessons are small, with a maximum of 16 students per class. The basic style is two 90-minute lessons in the morning (with a 30-minute break in the middle) and two 60-minute lessons in the afternoon. It will be held for 5 days and 3 weeks on weekdays from Monday to Friday. Weekends (Saturdays and Sundays) are free, so take advantage of global tourist destinations such as London, Oxford, Edinburgh, Cotswolds, and the Lake District, and take advantage of the location to travel to Paris on the international train Eurostar or from your local Birmingham Airport to Amsterdam. It is also possible to do.
 
There are three main types of lessons.
1. 1. Lessons for presentation skills
The presentation will be based on medical topics of interest (eg hepatitis B, diabetes) selected within a group of 2 or 3 people. (For details, please see " Presentation ".) After each presentation, questions will pop up from classmates, teachers, and customers who come to see the presentation, but how to respond to them is also a presentation class. It is included in the contents of. Asking and asking yourself questions is great for training overseas conferences and conferences in English that you may attend in the future. After the final presentation, you will receive feedback from your instructor.
 
2. 2. Medical role play
We will hold a "medical role-play" lesson, which is especially popular with participants. This medical interview is based on the style used in the OSCE ** , so those who have already taken theOSCE class should review it based on that knowledge. If you haven't taken it yet, you can take a medical interview lesson according to your level as a preparation for future classes.
 
After the lesson is given by a medical English program specialist, you will actually have a medical interview with a simulated patient (a professional actor who is actually in charge of simulated patients at the University of Leicester School of Medicine). The medical interview will be graded by the instructor in charge and will be given as feedback after the program ends.
 
* Since the OSCE was proposed in the United Kingdom in1975 , it has been popular mainly in Europe and North America as an excellent method for objectively evaluating clinical ability. Currently, it has been introduced in dozens of countries around the world, including Japan.

2.ネイティブが使っている【日常遣い英語】のレッスン

 イギリス英語とアメリカ英語はかなり違います。日本の学校で採用されている英語はその多くがアメリカ英語であり、サマープログラムでイギリス人の先生が話すイギリス英語は慣れるまでは何となく不思議に感じることがあるかもしれません。ですが、米国ハリウッド映画でも時代物の映画や、知的なイメージのキャラクターにはイギリス人をキャスティングすることからも分かるように、イギリス英語は世界的に【洗練された英語】としてネイティブだけでなく世界中の英語学習者に不動の人気を誇っています。

 

 イギリスと言えば「アフタヌーンティー」。そのアフタヌーンティーを体験するに当たってレッスンでアフタヌーンティー周辺の語彙やよく使う英語のフレーズ、またマナーやイギリス文化を学ぶ・・・。そしてロンドン日帰り旅行に行く前にはショッピングや旅行の際に知っていると便利な「使える英語」と歴史、加えてイギリス人が特にお薦めする観光スポットやインスタ映えする見逃せない穴場スポットなどを学ぶ・・・。その【アカデミック】と【実際の体験】が余りにも自然に連動しているので、レッスンの時には気付きませんが、イギリスで実際にショッピングをしていると、「あっ・・・この前習ったフレーズ通じた!」という場面に多く遭遇するはずです。

 

3.プレゼンテーション・スキルの為のレッスン

 興味のあるイギリス文化のトピックなどをベースに簡単なプレゼンテーションを組み立てます。プレゼンとは言っても、先生と一緒にトピックから資料探しまで一緒に作業を行いますのでご心配には及びません。クラスメイトに自分のプレゼンを何度も見てもらってアドバイスを貰ったり、先生からプレゼン時に注意することや発音などを学んでいるうちに、プログラム参加前の自分の英語と比べてたった3週間であるにもかかわらず自分の英語がどれほど伸びたかを実感できることでしょう。最終のプレゼンテーションを終えると、担当講師からフィードバックをもらえます。

 3週間のプログラムを無事終了されますとレスター大学より公式の修了証が授与されます。但し、修了証の発行に関しては全ての授業の85%以上に参加する必要がありますのでご注意ください。
