Information for medical professionals

Hi there! This page is all about location, scheduling, fees, and getting in contact.

Have you already seen our helpful pages about FAQs, our range of services and approach to training, and our clients' feedback?

The information below is for

  • healthcare professionals/students.

If you belong to a different category, please visit the business-clients page, or go back to the Practical info page.

We recommend you read the section about communication training for healthcare professionals.

For general communication skills training, Ear & Speak charges the normal individual client fees for healthcare professionals/students paying for themselves. For exam/interview preparation we charge a higher fee due to the special experience and expertise we offer.

Many healthcare professionals have trouble attending regular training due to their changing rosters and long hours. Ear & Speak offers special self-study accent training via our Accent Reduction at Home service. Please see the Accent Experts website for more info. This can be combined with infrequent extended face-to-face appointments or (less beneficial) Skype appointments to develop the skills which form part of the self-study training.
