How Canopy is Eliminating the Language Barrier in Healthcare

Canopy offers the only medical-specific framework for assessing and tracking a student's language-learning journey.
The Canopy Scale for Bilingual Proficiency in Healthcare Communication, developed by adapting the internationally recognized Common European Framework for Reference (CEFR) to the medical context based on a needs assessment and dozens of interviews with healthcare professionals, is the only medical-specific language proficiency scale in existence. 
Canopy also offers an Inventory of Essential Speaking and Listening Skills for Bilingual Healthcare Communication and a set of "can-do" statements that lets anyone track their proficiency progress on each skill.
CanopyEDU was designed to support students in improving the medical-specific proficiency related to each skill.
