Medical Spanish Courses

Multiple levels of medical Spanish classes offered in collaboration with 

MGH's Institute of Health Professions

The goal of these 5-week courses is to enable providers to connect with patients at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels.  Aligning with Continuing Education (CE) credit sought by a wide range of healthcare professionals, the courses are built on specific and measurable learning objectives developed for each student level, and aim to develop knowledge of and skills in Spanish language to broaden healthcare professionals’ performance in providing services for diverse patient groups. They are applicable to a range of healthcare professions including physicians, nurses, physician assistants, therapists, and many more. Our classes are conversation and vocabulary driven, targeting medical terminology as well as vital communication structures. We provide our students with essential medical terms as well as extensive conversational practice at all levels through interactive activities.
