Class Program
Credits 2.5
This year-long, beginner's course will help students acquire not only common Spanish words and phrases, but also gain a better understanding of some of the cultural aspects that can play a role in a Spanish-speaking patient’s health. By the end of this course, the students will be able to conduct a medical encounter with Spanish-speaking patients, provide basic medical instructions, and answer the patient’s more common questions. These outcomes will be achieved through study of Spanish medical terminology; use of colloquial words and phrases; review of Spanish grammar; practice conducting medical encounters in small groups.
