Course description.

Nowadays, more and more in the USA, health care professionals find themselves involved with patients who come from different parts of Latin America. Learning Spanish specifically aimed towards this health care context is a plus which must be strongly considered. Thus, Spanish for Healthcare Professionals is a course designed to teach students the basic and intermediate skills of medical Spanish that can be put into practice in real medical situations.

The goal of the course is to generate active participation through discussions of topics related to the medical profession, and through creative activities that imitate real-life situations. Focus is placed on role-play activities that will cover the most common medical procedures.

At the end of the course, students will have acquired in-depth vocabulary related to the body, medicine, illnesses and other relevant fields,  commands to tell a patient what to do during a hospital visit, or Latin American habits and idiosyncrasy which are involved in doctor-patient interaction. It is expected that students will be able to inquire what troubles a patient or to get all his personal information as well as to hold a typical medical interaction in communicative contexts.

Classes will be conducted in Spanish.
