In the world of medicine it is becoming increasingly important to learn a second language. This program is designed specifically for healthcare professionals who would like to learn Spanish as a second language, concentrating on the vocabulary needed in the field of medicine.
Our purpose is to supply our students with medical vocabulary, common idioms and the conversational Spanish needed to help them communicate with their Spanish-speaking patients.
NOTE: Our curriculum does not cover highly specialized medical terminology. It will provide you with the basic vocabulary, or layman's terms, you need to communicate with your patients.
During the Medical Spanish tutoring you will focus on practical situations such as :
Admission/general interview/medical history; Illnesses, allergies, etc. ; Remedies and prescriptions; Parts of the hospital/specialists; Parts of the body/organs; Emergencies; Surgery; Other topics depending on your specialization
Our Medical Spanish program is designed as a complement to our general small-group Spanish courses. The program is offered through private tutoring 3 to 5 times a week, 1-2 hours per session, and sessions are usually held immediately following your small-group class in general Spanish. We can also offer the course as a small-group class for students traveling together.
Students at an intermediate Spanish level or higher who are not interested in general Spanish instruction may enroll for our Medical Spanish program without enrolling in a general Spanish class, if desired.
We strongly recommend that any student below the intermediate-level of Spanish enroll in our regular small-group Spanish classes in addition to the Medical Spanish program to improve his or her general Spanish skills at the same time as learning the specialized Medical Spanish.
