The Boston Medical Spanish Center exists to:
bring medical Spanish classes and programming to dentists, doctors, nurses, physical therapists, administrators and other healthcare professionals. From beginners to advanced speakers, individuals and teams can improve their ability to communicate meaningfully with patients in Spanish.
We partner with medical schools and health centers in an effort to have the most significant impact among the Spanish-speaking communities in Boston and throughout the United States.
Since 2011, we have been designing engaging and effective medical Spanish classes for Boston's healthcare students and professionals.
Bridging the communication gap which exists between many providers and this large segment of the U.S. population will improve health outcomes among countless underserved communities.
Empowering clinicians and healthcare administrators to communicate in the second most widely spoken language in the United States develops stronger relationships with patients, reduces miscommunication, and improves cultural understanding.
Our courses aim to develop knowledge of, and skills in, the Spanish language to broaden healthcare professionals’ performance in providing services for diverse patient groups. Courses are built on specific and measurable learning objectives developed for each student level. These aims align with the requirements of Continuing Education (CE) credit sought by a wide range of healthcare professionals. Please visit our Courses page or reach out to us to learn more.
