Pharmacy students studying ESP are taught how to ‘speak a consumer’s language’ which can be achieved if a specialist has professional reflective skills that are formed in the process of participation in the simulation and business games, didactic dramas designed by the author based on the Reflective and Creative Approach. A pharmacist should have a psychologist’s skills required for the proper communication with the consumers in order to sell medications successfully and the skills of conflict management to reduce the conflicts’ negative impact on the pharmacy’s staff. ESP teacher who designs the educational technologies should be aware of the psychology of professional communication in the process of pharmaceutical care. For improving ESP teaching, cooperation with the different departments (Bioethics, Pharmaceutical Marketing and Management) of Kursk State Medical University is carried out. The development of the future pharmacists’ professional communication is viewed as the development of skills and behaviors necessary for their professional activity, and it becomes efficient only in case of using interdisciplinary links of the discipline ‘Foreign language’ with the other academic disciplines.
