Medical Terminology & Communication

OMNI’s Medical Terminology & Communication course is designed for medical professionals who want to improve their communication within the health care workplace.  The course focuses on improving language fluency by practicing listening, speaking, reading and writing tasks in the context of a Canadian health care setting.

Nurses, doctors, pharmacists, physical therapists, international health care students and other medical professionals where English is not their first language would be best suited for this course.  The course teaches not just terminology but also assists the student to apply the terminology and effectively communicate in an English-speaking workplace environment.  Students who successfully complete the course will be able to identify all human anatomy-related terms, be able to communicate disorders and diseases, describe procedures for various emergencies, understand terms in psychiatry/mental health, and pharmacology, and describe common workplace medications, treatments and their administration.  Coursework includes in-class presentations, working on presentation skills (speaking clearly, using a loud voice, facial and body expressions, etc) and interpersonal communication skills.
