Communication is important in every career, but none more so than in medicine.

Interacting with patients and colleagues will form a huge part of your day-to-day programme, and if you have poor communicative skills, then not only will it make your job harder, but it can also put people’s lives at risk.

For example, communication is a key part of initial diagnosis. Tests and scans can confirm or rule out certain theories, but in order to understand what is going on with a patient, you need to be able to ask the right questions, read between the lines with their answers and convey to them in simple terms what your thoughts are. Likewise, you need to be able to understand what other professionals (such as nurses, paramedics or pharmacists) are telling you and give them clear directions in return.

Remember: you can be the brightest academic or the most skilled physician in the business, but if you can’t effectively talk and listen to others, then you – and your patients – are going to struggle.


Communication is a key skill in the workplace. Hospitals can fail or succeed based on how effectively their people can convey vision or interpret direction, with something as simple as a poorly written email having the potential to cause major damage within that hospital’s culture; conversely, a powerful, well-delivered speech can inspire and motivate an entire workplace.
