GAIN NEW CONFIDENCE THROUGH PRACTICAL TRAINING


FURTHER DEVELOP SPANISH COMMUNICATION SKILLS TO ENHANCE YOUR MEDICAL CAREER

Our healthcare system increasingly cares for Spanish-speaking patients who are not able to speak sufficient English. This creates a critical need for healthcare professionals nationwide who are comfortable communicating in a Spanish-speaking environment. As you can imagine, most employers would prefer to hire people who can speak the language, rather than rely on interpreters.

As a medical professional and heritage Spanish speaker, you could have a real advantage. You may have grown up in a Spanish-speaking household and know the language, but don’t feel comfortable speaking Spanish in a professional environment. You may also not
be fluent in medical terminology and speaking Spanish in the workplace. Don’t get frustrated. You’re much closer than you think.

Medical Spanish for Heritage Speakers is a live instructor-led online program that immerses you in practical role play exercises, giving you the confidence to bridge this gap.
