English language proficiency is essential for Uzbek medical students to access global medical knowledge, participate in international collaborations, and communicate effectively in clinical settings. This study examines strategies for enhancing Uzbek medical students' English grammatical and lexical skills. A literature review identified effective approaches including explicit grammar instruction, extensive reading and listening, medical vocabulary learning, and communicative practice. Analysis suggests that an integrated curriculum combining these strategies in a context-specific way is most beneficial. Uzbek medical schools should provide robust language support, leveraging available resources and technologies.
