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. Each level shares core attributes that align with Continuing Education (CE) credit sought by a wide range of healthcare professionals:

  • Aim to develop knowledge of and skills in Spanish language to broaden healthcare professionals’ performance in providing services for diverse patient groups

  • Applicable to a range of healthcare professions including physicians, nurses, physician assistants, therapists, and many more

  • Built on specific and measurable learning objectives

  • Conversation and vocabulary driven, targeting medical terminology and vital communication structures through interactive activities
