English Language Test For Healthcare Professionals

What is the OET test?

OET is an international English language test that assesses the language communication skills of healthcare professionals who seek to register and practice in an English-speaking environment.

The test assesses all 4 language skills, including reading, writing, listening, and speaking, using test materials that reflect typical communication scenarios from the healthcare industry.

OET results are accepted as proof of English language skills world-wide, including in Canada, the United States, the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. Many organizations, including hospitals, universities, and colleges are using OET as proof of a candidate’s ability to communicate effectively in a demanding healthcare environment.
