French Hospital Vocabulary

Here you will find an extensive list of vocabulary words which you can use in the hospital (L’Hôpital). You will see that most of these words are almost the same as English. This is because both the English and French medical words are derived from Latin. Thus, the words are very easy to learn. Also, you will find that most of the words use the feminine gender (la versus le).
