American English for International Professionals

Event series runs weekly on Tuesday from Aug 8 to Oct 12, 2017.

The mission of AEI is to help international medical professionals empower themselves with effective communication skills in the context of the American language and cultural norms. Participants learn to minimize their non-native accents and cultivate good conversational skills. This brings the focus back to their exceptional academic abilities and increases their opportunities for professional advancement. The program also seeks to increase awareness in American health care providers about cultural differences in communication to facilitate intercultural understanding and tolerance. Awareness begets acceptance and adaptability to work with the differences.

AEI offers medical professionals an opportunity to improve their communication skills in a relaxed, noncompetitive atmosphere. It can provide the confidence and determination to pursue more conversations – professional and personal – in American English.

Course runs weekly, Aug. 2 - Oct. 11, 2017
