Danish for Health Care Professionals at Studieskolen

Healthcare Danish is a Danish course focusing on how to communicate with citizens, residents or patients in the healthcare system. Communication is important - especially when you are helping and caring for another human being. In the course, you will learn a basic working language that you can use to be part of a working community. You will also learn common terms, vocabulary and abbreviations that are frequently used among healthcare professionals.

We have developed 3 courses in Health Danish. You should start with course 1.
