Needs Assessment: International Biomedical Students and Researchers

EPPIC researchers conducted interviews at the Penn State Hershey College of Medicine with medical school administrators, staff members, international biomedical graduate students, and multilingual research scholars to assess current challenges in academic and professional communication among international students & scholars at Hershey, and related needs for language support services.  Findings from these interviews have been used to inform the creation and implementation of the EESIBP (Enhancing English Skills for International Biomedical Professionals) program, designed by EPPIC, for international biomedical students and scholars at Penn State Hershey.
