'In which occupation are you?' 'From how long have you been smoking?' 'Do you take any alcohol/drinks?' All overseas qualified doctors who apply for registration in the UK must satisfy the General Medical Council that they have the necessary knowledge of English by obtaining a satisfactory score in the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination. This interactive workbook provides a wide range of questions and answers on this subject containing specific medical sections to address the common problems and pitfalls relating to vocabulary and fluency in everyday medical consultations. Overseas qualified doctors needing to take the IELTS examination in order to be eligible for the GMC PLAB examination which is required for practice in the UK will find this book essential for their study.
