520    English Language and the Medical Profession: Instructing 
       and Assessing the Communication Skills of International 
       Physicians is designed for a new context for English 
       language teaching: the emerging, worldwide interest in 
       English for medicine. The book offers a program for an 
       English language curriculum that is specifically designed 
       for the important and growing group of international 
       medical professionals, with a focus on both instruction 
       and assessment. International physicians in the United 
       States now total more than 25% of the physician workforce.
       Even subsequent to their passage of the clinical skills 
       exam required for licensing and practice as physicians in 
       U.S. hospitals, international physicians face 
       communication challenges as first-year residents and may 
       be referred to specialists for language and cultural 
       issues. Advanced residents may face additional issues when
       they begin work as independent practitioners. The volume 
       goes beyond existing texts in collecting the expertise of 
       English language teaching and testing experts, medical 
       residency supervisors, medical licensing, and exchange 
       agencies in examining issues related to international 
       physicians' performance as graduate students and doctors 
       in hospitals and other settings. Contributors include 
       specialists at the Educational Commission for Foreign 
       Medical Graduates and doctors who supervise international 
       medical residents as well as recognized ESP practitioners.
