What Language is Best For doing Business in Healthcare (not a doctor...a businessman in the health industry)?

Hi,

I'm going to start college as a pre-med, but lately the idea of working on an international level seems really appealing to me, and frankly, being a doctor won't allow me to do that. I already know English (very fluently of course), Hindi (very conversational in it b/c I'm Indian..I know, Indian and pre-med, who woulda thunk it), and know a decent amount of spanish (conversational in it) and am looking to add one more language. I am not at all interested in Chinese, Japanese, etc. and am looking for a European or Middle Eastern language probably, but what language is best for working in the health industry on an international scale? Is there some country that is particularly strong in the health sciences (I'm thinking Germany or Italy or something)? Please help me out, because I need to sign up for classes soon!

thanks in advance.
