The UrgentiAS database was compiled to meet the needs of Dutch-speaking Belgian medical students attending classes of <i>Medical English/French/Spanish</i> to prepare for their clinical placements abroad. The database provides students with an easy-to-use multilingual medical lexicon, which can help them acquire the vocabulary needed for their placements in <i>obstetrics/gynaecology, pediatrics and internal medicine</i>. Its main purpose is to ensure that the <i>representative vocabulary is presented and acquired in context, both semantically and syntactically</i>. Our <i>corpus analysis of both scientific and popular medical language use</i> resulted in an online database (partially available on paper) consisting of terminology cards with associative contexts, to be used in a <i>setting of blended learning</i>.
