I have been an English language professional for over 20 years. After working with a physician from Vietnam who needed help with his spoken English, it was clear to me that there is a broad need for physician-specific English communication programs.
I realized that physicians have unique vocabulary requirements, so I began focusing my energy on providing the skills and tools that international physicians can use to communicate clearly and effectively, taking cultural nuances into consideration.
Now after years of mentoring and encouraging IMGs through the Match and beyond, I'm so proud of the hundreds who have been helped on their professional journeys.
