UOM Main Page

Study-Unit code - MAL0025

This study-unit builds on MAL0019 Basic Medical Maltese for the Healthcare Professions 1, and is partly a reinforcement of its content. It therefore focuses on the necessary skills to communicate effectively in Maltese with patients and their relatives and with colleagues in a medical environment.

The study-unit, however, exposes the participants to basic Maltese grammar, more specific anatomical terminology, doctor-patient communication and understanding patients’ symptoms, prescribing medicines and interacting in a medical setting. Students will have the opportunity to extend their communication skills in Maltese through case studies, role-play and medical conversations.

Study-unit Aims:

The aim of this study-unit is to help foreign healthcare professionals consolidate basic Maltese grammar and acquire sufficient medical terminology in Maltese in order to enable them to communicate efficiently in the local healthcare setting.
