Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of A Handout on Medical English for Health Professionals by Goretti Faya Ornia and Héctor Hernández Lázaro.

This book offers a guide to medical English, and is addressed to healthcare professionals and students with an upper-intermediate level of English. It will also be useful as a handout for specialised English courses offered in medicine, nursing, and physiotherapy degrees, and can be used as a self-study book.

The book is made up of four chapters, structured into three sections: namely, grammar, science, and phonetics. Each chapter reviews the main points of English grammar, and works with the vocabulary of the medical field. The book also provides students with basic knowledge of phonetics, which will help them to improve their listening and speaking skills.
