EHP (English for Health Professionals) is designed for both the Australian medical profession and the occupations and aspirations of our students. Made up of materials from tried and tested course books and real-world documents, it aims to equip students with the English they need to communicate professionally and confidently with colleagues, supervisors and patients.

Previous EHP students have included doctors, dentists, nurses, midwives, veterinary surgeons, paramedics, pharmacists, physiotherapists, nutritionists, psychologists and clinical engineers.
