Module 1

The first module is based around the opening stages of a consultation, beginning when the patient enters the consulting room and ending with setting the agenda for the rest of the consultation.


The module consists of the following sections:

  • The Self-assessment exercise will give you an overview of the module content. You can see where your strengths are and where you need to do extra practice.
  • Language and Communication Skills practice exercises introduce useful language and skills for this stage of the interview. Some exercises contain video and audio and may take time to download if you have a dial-up internet connection. There are also 'mini-role play' tasks to enable you to practise language more freely.
  • The Role play section contains instructions for performing in a range of scenarios. Work with a partner to practise the language and skills you have studied in the module.
