    English for medical purposes
    (2022) Ibrahim-Ali, Amina; Marshall, Shelley
    In 2009 the University of the West Indies (UWI) Centre for Language Learning (CLL) was contracted by the Ministry of Health to provide an English for Specific Purposes (ESP) course for a newly-arrived cohort of Cuban healthcare professionals. By the end of a sixty-hour course in a two-week period, these doctors and nurses were to assume duty at local hospitals and health centres throughout Trinidad & Tobago. Readiness of the Cuban medical staff for the local context implied their familiarity with local cultural norms and their ability to decipher the local standard language and creole; and to make themselves understood.
