A Real Difference - Gwahaniaeth Mawr

Students and doctors have referred to the ‘real difference’ that studying medicine in Welsh has made to their capacity for learning and how it has been crucial for their practice.

Currently Welsh medical students at Welsh universities can choose to be taught up to 30% of their programme in Welsh and to be evaluated through the medium of Welsh. However, students wishing to do so need to prepare, study and research through English medical texts and publications, placing them and Welsh speaking patients at a disadvantage.

This project will commission the translation into Welsh of a pilot text provided by Doctors Academy, an international leading provider of independent and innovative medical education and training.

The project will also fund an internship to a postgraduate student in Translation Studies to translate the text. The medical text will be made available as an open-access resource for all medical professionals.
