To set undergraduate medical English teaching closer to the national demand scientifically, target needs and social needs questionnaires on medical English proficiency were carried out towards medical undergraduates and medical professionals. The results showed that: there is a deviation between skills that learners need to acquire in the target scenario cognitive and the social practical needs, there are differences in learner’s needs of certain skills in speaking and writing in the target scene in three dimensions and the needs for four skills under a dimension. To explore the causes of these phenomena, we propose to set Undergraduate Medical English course program considering the needs of the learner objectives and social needs, and to arrange speaking and writing modules hours and teaching content.
