Are you struggling to communicate with your Spanish-speaking patients?  If so, here's the perfect solution. Whether you're new to the Spanish language or just want a refresher, this fun and simple course will give you the basic tools you need to bridge the communication gap. 

With increasing numbers of Spanish-speaking patients entering the healthcare system every year, it's more crucial than ever for health professionals to learn medical Spanish. What's more, adding Spanish skills to your résumé can broaden your career horizons. But you're a busy person, and you don't have time to waste—so this course skips the "touristy" topics and focuses on the survival Spanish medical personnel really need to know in a medical setting.

Starting with the basics of Spanish pronunciation, you'll move right into simple words for everyday topics including colors, numbers, conversational phrases, family names, and words for asking questions. Next, you'll get to the meat of the course as you discover how to ask about pain, symptoms, medical histories, insurance, and patients' feelings. You'll also learn how to talk about body parts, diets, and medical care and treatment. Along the way, entertaining games and stories will help you practice your new vocabulary as you gain awareness about Latin American culture.

By the end of this course, you'll have a strong foundation in basic medical Spanish that you can build on for years to come. ¡Vamos! (Let's go!)
