MONTANE GONZALEZ, Bárbara et al. A strategy to the professional training of Medical English for professors of General English Language. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.3, pp.250-266. ISSN 1561-3194.

Learning English Language for specific purposes acquires special characteristics, for that knowledge of General English is not sufficient. Professors of English Language have had to face English language teaching for specific purposes from the self-preparation, self-learning and empirical point of view, not only in pre-graduate but also in post-graduate education. This research paper was aimed at designing a strategy for professional training at Medical Terminology in English Language to the General English Language at “Dr. Ernesto Guevara de la Serna” Medical School, Pinar del Rio. Using the historical-logical, inductive-deductive methods to carry out this study, together with observations to a system of lectures and surveys to the teaching staff and directives of the department of Languages. The target group was comprised of 33 professors of English Language at the Medical School during the present academic course (2011-2012). The sample gathered 100% of the target group. Results showed that General English Language professors had not mastered the contents of English Language for specific purposes in Medical Sciences, not even they have the necessary methodological grounding to undertake the teaching activities and the preparation of under-graduate and post-graduate students of the Medical Sciences. The strategy designed took into account the criteria of experts, since its implementation can be possible in any of the teaching Medical Science institutions all over the country.
