Hello everybody, I am new in this forum and I hope to get a lot of experience in this place. I am quite young, just 33.
I think this symposium would be a great sapce to learn many things reagarding the teaching of medical ESP. It is too bad that I do not have the chance to attend this event since I can not afford my trip or the staying.
Maybe some day I could earn enough money to run the expenses by my own.
Any way I would really appreciate any experience obtained in this symposium to be transmitted to me.
I am really interested in motivating medical students using authentic and new medical texts, so that stuedents can learn the language and medical contents or discoveries, which will be very useful in their future proffesional life.
Thanks
A cuban young teacher who loves teaching ESP

Hello, everyone:
I just want to take a moment to say the 2006 International Symposium on English for Medical Purposes in Beijing was absolutely fantastic this year! EMP faculty from a wide number of Chinese universities presented papers and research along with a few international guests. The changes and the progress being made in China's English for Medical Purposes teaching methods and goals in just the last 2 years since I've been there is really quite phenomenal. The opportunity to dialogue and go forward together in this exciting ESP field was exceptional.

I want to also say how disappointing it was to see so few of you who read and write on EMP/English for Nursing on Dave's ESL Cafe claiming to be dedicated to doing a 'great' job teaching doctors, nurses and medical professionals Enlgish and yet missing opportunities like this for your own professional development. Where were you?

Well, dedication and devotion are two different things. I'm dedicated to teaching and trying to do the best job that I can in all areas that I teach which includes medical ESP, but I have other obligations. I was actually doing reasearch and reading through research articles for my masters course in applied linguistics.

It's great that the symposium went well and a shame to have missed it.

Hi, 'mesmark':
Please know I wasn't specifically referring to you when I wrote my last post wondering where all the EMP teachers were. As an academic myself, I applaud your dedication and commitment to your field. Honestly. But as a professional you must agree that we are all 'supposed' to be involved in some sort of professional development or continuing education so that we might teach to the highest standards and work towards successful learner outcomes. That is why I posed the question.

Hope all is well with you, otherwise? I hear you also had a fantastic English for Medical/English for Nurses conference in Japan about 2 weeks prior to one in Beijing. I wonder how that was?

Bye for now...
