How to get by around the hospital

A short guide on how to get by around a hospital setting


Working as an international doctor in a hospital environment where English is the main language of communication can be a bit of dauting task.

  • places on the ward

In the next article we will address the following practices:

  • how to introduce yourself to a patient
  • how to interact with a patient during a medical examination
  • language Focus
