Students will acquire/improve their ability to understand and produce ¬both written and oral scientific texts. Particular attention will be given to the lexical, syntactic, phonological and pragmatic aspects of scientific English. Lectures will include text analysis, lexical work, and practical exercises and interactive activities, therefore students’ participation is strongly recommended. A second part will take into consideration medical ethics. Indeed, the practice of medicine has changed in ways that highlight the relevance of ethical issues. This approach pays special attention to the goals of medical care, because so much depends on whether or not physician and patient share the same goals.
