The information below is for
- medical professionals/students.
If you are making a business enquiry or are a non-medical client, please go back to the Location and scheduling page.
Ear & Speak has considerable experience working with clients in a wide range of medical and related fields. Dr Duncan Markham can engage with the subject matter in most fields, meaning that training remains dynamic and relevant for medical professionals, whether it be doctor-patient interactions or biological and chemical mechanisms.
We can help both English native-speaker and second-language-speaker clients to prepare for degree or professional OSCEs, Occupational English Tests, Multiple Mini Interviews and other challenges.
For general communication skills training, Ear & Speak charges the normal individual client fees for medical professionals/students paying for themselves. For exam/interview preparation we charge a higher fee due to the special experience and expertise we offer.
To better understand the services and training, it can be helpful to read through the information on the other pages of this site before contacting me.
Many medical 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.

Please don't leave your appointment request too late, especially if you're thinking about training for an urgent issue like interviews. This is particularly important if you can only attend during popular periods (lunch, late afternoon, Saturday). In the last six months, the typical waiting time to start training has varied between 2 and 10 weeks.
NOTE: Make sure you include your name and phone number, or I won't regard your enquiry as serious. (The phone number is only used to send an SMS to check you received my reply (unless you've actually asked me to call you). I do not share your details or spam you.) It is also helpful to know a bit about you and why you are interested in my services.
An automatic email reply is sent immediately and a personal reply from me within about two business days. Email isn't perfect -- please check your spam/junk folder, and just call me if no reply arrives.
