University of Leicester

Online Medical English Program

 
Program contents
The "Medical English International Summer Program (held in August every year)" and "Medical English Spring Program (held in March every year)" held at the University of Leicester every year will reach the 15th year of the course in 2020, and a total of 500 from all over the world. It is the longest-running medical English program in the UK with more than one medical student in attendance.
 
The online medical English program is structured so that participants can master only the lessons of "Medical Role Play", which is especially popular among the above programs, which are normally held for 3 weeks, in a short period of time. It has become. This "Medical Role Play" is based on medical interviews in the OSCE **, so those who have already taken theOSCE will be based on that knowledge, and those who have not yet taken the exam will be taking the exam in the future. As a preparation, you can take lessons with various approaches based on the participants' experiences.
 
* 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.
 
The lessons use Zoom and are small groups of up to 16 students per class. Due to the time difference between Japan and the UK, the lessons basically start around 6-7 pm (Japanese time) and are held twice a week for 3 weeks with a target of 2 to 3 hours a day.
 
* This online medical English program is only for Japanese medical students due to the time difference of each country. Please understand.
 
On the first day of the program, we will also input medical interview lessons from the second day, explain the differences between the medical systems in Japan and the UK in Japanese , and then freely discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each country's system. (About 2 hours). Why was the number of deaths from infection in the United Kingdom, which boasted a white-eyed medical system in Europe, the highest due to this new corona infection? On the other hand, I would like to exchange opinions such as "What was the policy of Japan that is evaluated to control infection?"
 
From the 2nd day, a medical English program specialist will give lessons for about 2 to 3 hours a day for a total of about 10 and a half hours (lessons in English). After the lesson, you will actually have a medical interview with the simulated patient. The medical interview will be graded by the instructor in charge and will be sent as feedback by attaching it to an email after the program ends. If the program is successfully completed, the University of Leicester will give you an official certificate of completion.
 
* The certificate of completion will be sent by attaching it to an email.
* A fee will be charged for those who wish to receive a certificate of completion / feedback of the original, but it is also possible to mail it. Please contact us
 
 
All lessons will be recorded, so you can see the lesson contents at a later date even if you cannot participate due to internet connection or poor physical condition.
 
* Recording is possible only if all participants agree to record the lesson.
* After the program ends, all recorded data will be deleted.

Nagoya University School of Medicine Program :
 
  • Both the 1st and 2nd term are for all grades.
  • I don't care about English ability.
  • At least half of the participants are requested to participate in order to receive assistance from Nagoya University.  You can see the recorded lessons that you couldn't attend at a later date, so you can participate in the next lesson with confidence.
 
For details on participation conditions, please contact the person in charge at the International Cooperation Office, Nagoya University School of Medicine.
Those other than Nagoya University :
 
  • Faculty of medicine, faculties / departments related to medical engagement, medical professionals
  • The program focuses on theOSCE medical interview, but it is structured so that even those who have not yet taken theOSCE can follow the lessons. If you can check only the flow of "medical interview" in advance, I think that you can start the lesson more easily. In addition, when we are divided into groups and practice medical interviews with each other, we will divide them into groups so that they will work withOSCE experienced people as much as possible, so it is possible to hear various advice within the group.
  • The English proficiency required for participation from the University of Leicester is Level 2 or higher, but you do not need to submit a certificate of Eiken or equivalent English proficiency at the time of application.
  • We ask that you participate in more than 50% of the classes. Classes that could not be attended due to unavoidable circumstances can be viewed at a later date, so you can participate in the next class with confidence.

Reference example of medical interview
You can see the demonstration of the medical interview training that was actually conducted in the field from here.
The instructor is scoring for feedback on the camera side, but if the participants think that the participants are stagnant or do not understand the meaning clearly, they make gestures to help the conversation. You can see that.
 
This demo video takes about 2 minutes, but the actual medical interview is about 5 minutes.
