Course Overview

Interacting with Spanish-speaking patients may arise frequently in a health care position. In a medical career, lacking basic knowledge of the Spanish Language can be inefficient and dangerous. Saving someone’s life is difficult if you don’t understand what they are saying. Taking this course will boost your professional communication skills in the workplace, as well as make you more comfortable and productive.

Spanish for Health Care is a self-paced, online occupational Spanish conversation course that seeks to bridge the communication gap between English-speaking health care professionals and Spanish-speaking patients.

Students will build their workplace Spanish vocabulary and conversation skills while learning with pictures, native-pronunciations, readings, and quizzes, as well as cultural tidbits along the way.
