The Occupational English Test (OET) is the English language test for healthcare professionals. It assesses the language communication skills of healthcare professionals who wish to register and practise in an English-speaking environment.
OET is an international English language test that assesses the language proficiency of healthcare professionals seeking to register and practise in an English-speaking environment. It provides a validated, reliable assessment of all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking – with the emphasis on communication in healthcare professional settings. OET tests candidates from the following 12 health professions: Dentistry, Dietetics, Medicine, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Optometry, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Podiatry, Radiography, Speech Pathology and Veterinary Science.
As a test specifically for healthcare, OET puts a lot of emphasis on developing materials and tasks to reflect authentic workplace communication.
Components of OET:
The four components of OET
– Listening is the same test material for all professions as the topics are related to general healthcare.
– Reading is also the same test material for all professions,
– Writing is profession-specific, so each profession has different test materials, based on the demands of the profession.
– Speaking is also profession-specific and takes the format of two role-plays.
