Scientific English courses for Physiotherapists

The European Academy of English for Health Professionals offer intensive professional English language courses specifically developed for Physiotherapists. Our offer include the 1-week English courses in Malta, or shorter intensive courses of 1 to 3 days in duration delivered locally to your institution.

Technical language for Physiotherapists

These courses have been designed to provide physiotherapists with deeper understanding and knowledge of English and to help build technical vocabulary related to their field. Our principal goal is to assist physiotherapists to communicate effectively and accurately through English in their working lives. Dedicated sessions will be provided which will cover the key terminology used for the assessment, treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction. There will be interactive sessions focused on concepts, principles and theories of current physiotherapy practice and on the research that underpins physiotherapy practice.

Interactive practical sessions

Interactive, practical, physiotherapy sessions using the fully equipped clinical skills laboratories will focus on current physiotherapy techniques, anatomy, pathology and patient communication. In these fully equipped clinical skills laboratories you will also benefit from English language instruction, with a clinical focus, in small groups, where you will strengthen your language skills under the tuition of highly qualified staff.

Communication with patients in English

Dedicated practical role-play scenarios for physiotherapists will be conducted in the clinical skills laboratories at University of Malta where participants will interact and discuss standard questions that would be directed at patients, terminology related to the associated area of expertise and how best to explain this to patients, and terminology related to equipment specific for  physiotherapy.

Preparing for conference presentations:

A scientific abstract related to your area of expertise will be reviewed and discussed in small groups and a presentation delivered on this topic followed by questions and answers. Presentation skills will be covered throughout the course. Participants will be required to give an informal initial presentation followed by a short, formal scientific presentation at the end of the course.
