The teaching objectives of the public English courses for postgraduates in medical schools should turn to academic English to improve students' listening, speaking, reading, writing, and translation abilities in the medical academic field. This study studies the cultivation of academic English literacy of postgraduates in medical colleges from the aspects of curriculum, teaching content, teaching methods, teaching evaluation and application of modern technology, actively explores and establishes a complete academic English teaching system for postgraduates, and puts forward suggestions on how to carry out teaching activities according to the needs analysis and investigation results. EAP plays a bridge role in helping postgraduates to transition from college English study to academic English thesis writing, so it is necessary to offer EAP course. The online terminology database and self-built medical paper corpus are used to cultivate the academic English writing ability of graduate students. After a semester of rigorous training, students not only learn to use retrieval methods to solve vocabulary and grammar problems in writing, but also master the discourse structure and functional language features of medical academic papers.
