Abstract: This paper aims at exploring new methodologies to make the practice of medical translation more interesting and stimulating for language students. It is based on two third year courses held at the University of Parma (Italy), for undergraduates reading modern languages. The courses made great use of audio-visual materials, which translate intersemiotically and often, intralinguistically, the language used in specialized domains. The original and dubbed versions of some of the most popular television series whose focus is, precisely, the language of medicine (namely House M.D. and Scrubs) were the basis for a series of activities aimed at helping students approach the study of medical translation for the first time. | L’articolo mira a esplorare nuove metodologie atte a rendere l’approccio allo studio della traduzione medica stimolante e originale ed è basato su due corsi di terzo anno tenuti all’Università di Parma (Italia), per studenti del Corso in Lingue e Civiltà Straniere Moderne. Durante i corsi si è fatto largo uso di materiali audiovisivi che traducono intersemioticamente e, spesso, intralinguisticamente, il linguaggio medico utilizzato in ambito specialistico. Le versioni originali e doppiate di alcune serie televisive incentrate sul linguaggio medico (nello specifico Dr. House M.D. e Scrubs), hanno dunque costituito la base per una serie di attività mirate a facilitare l’avvicinamento degli studenti allo studio della traduzione medica.
