Medical Spanish 101

About this Course

For Practitioners and Patients

This course has been designed for practitioners, medical staff, and patients. The course covers basic to advanced medical vocabulary, and puts it into context as real life conversations are presented. The course takes you through the waiting room, triage, a basic medical consultation, diagnosis, giving advice, making recommendations, and discussing psychological concerns.

The course is not only meant for practitioners, but would be a benefit to expats living in a Spanish speaking world in which they deal with issues of health, both for themselves and within their communities.

Some grammatical understanding is recommended for this course, however, the beginner basics are re-emphasized and additional lessons have been provided as a refresher for students who may need a review.
