Objective

This course prepares foreign physicians comprehensively for the Medical Language Test C1 to obtain the German medical license (Approbation) as well as for the medical working life.

Course contents

In classroom instruction, the relevant structures as well as the peculiarities of the professional competences in the area of communication and interaction are explained (for example, taking history, case presentation, patient consent, patient consultation, documentation). The medical language skills are taught with regard to the professional competencies and are practically trained using simulated patients. In addition, occupational aspects of the German health system are presented in detail. For this purpose, an introduction to professional multi-professional communication is carried out in consideration of interculturality.

E-learning

The e-learning serves to consolidate the newly acquired professional language skills through different individual online exercises.

The course consists of 12 online learning modules with different learning tasks and interactive learning videos in the learning platform ILIAS. Clips, audios, graphics, pictures and texts with professional language exercises are integrated into the respective learning modules. Allocation questions, cloze texts, classic single and multiple-choice assignments complete the learning experience and ensure a high impact and a high level of learning engagement.
