This established and highly-regarded course provides essential medical French and the confidence to use it. It is invaluable for doctors and medical students intending to study or work clinically in French-speaking countries or with organisations such as Médecins sans Frontières.

Teaching is in small groups, according to the level of spoken French-speaking; all levels from basic (GCSE/O-Level) to fluent are accommodated. Tutors are experienced teachers, including French-speaking doctors, professional linguists and UK-trained doctors who have worked in France.

Feedback from recent courses has consistently praised the quality and content of the teaching, its usefulness for both doctors and students, and its value for money – as well as a hugely enjoyable weekend.

The course fees include standard or superior accommodation (all rooms have an en-suite bathroom), all meals, tea and coffee, and a comprehensive course handbook covering general vocabulary, the systems of the body, primary care, medical emergencies, prescribing, etc.

Standard fee: £150 for students and £375 for doctors and other professionals.

An upgrade from standard to superior accommodation is available for an extra £120.

The 2012 course has places for 40 doctors and 30 students. Recent courses were heavily over-subscribed; early application is advised.
