Due to the continuing uncertainties affecting us all, we have decided to host a virtual event in September: the English for Healthcare Virtual Symposium. Just like it’s bigger sister-event, the English for Healthcare Conference (which will now take place in 2022) , the English for Healthcare Virtual Symposium is dedicated to the teaching and learning of English for healthcare and medicine. It aims to encourage an exchange of ideas to stimulate discussion and to provide a platform for the presentation of new approaches for a better understanding of the teaching, learning and ‘doing’ language and communication for healthcare.
The event will be of interest to language teachers and communication skills trainers working with health professionals (e.g. nurses, doctors, dentists, radiographers, physiotherapists) both in training and in the workplace, and practitioners from the medical translation and interpreting field.
NB If you have sent an abstract for the English for Healthcare Conference, it will automatically be considered for inclusion at the Virtual Symposium.
