Conversational Spanish for Medical Professionals
Course description: In this four-week long course students will learn the necessary speaking and listening skills required to communicate with Spanish-speaking patients in a variety of settings. This class caters to medical professionals (nurses, PAs, NPs, physicians, emergency responders, occupational therapists, physical therapists, etc.) and covers topics such as general health, family, medical conditions, nutrition, and medicine. Basic tools and terminology, including non-technical and semi-technical vocabulary, idiomatic expressions and situational phrases will be covered and then practiced in simulated medical situations in preparation for professional application in the medical world. Instruction is in English, though the majority of class will take place in the target language, Spanish. This course is open to all levels and no prior Spanish experience is necessary.
