Welcome! This is a website for healthcare providers to learn medical Mandarin, with basic lessons, a phrasebook, and audio.
First things first, for those who aren’t fluent:
- Start with English. Only use Mandarin when there is a need, and be humble. Remember that your patient may not speak Mandarin, even if they are of Asian descent.
- Patient safety first. Know the limits to your abilities in Mandarin and do not try to manage a patient completely with the phrases here. Enlist help from an interpreter whenever possible.
That said, we’re excited that you’re here! What describes your current Mandarin level?
