Learning English in Mongolia

Anatomy & Physiology

Anatomy and Physiology for Non-Native English Speakers is based on “Anatomy & Physiology“, an online course created by hundreds of instructors who teach the course. The aim of this course is to help doctors and nurses use what they know already about human anatomy and physiology to better their English. It is more a quick overview. The use of English is more important than detailed explanations of how the body works.

This is new for 2017 and is an ongoing project. Below, you will find links to completed sections of the online lessons, which will be added every week, so keep coming back.

I would like to dedicate these lessons to all of my English students who were doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals. But I especially want to thank those medical students who studied hard in my classes and went on to be wonderful, dedicated doctors in Mongolia.
