SPAN 2000 - Conversational Spanish for Health Care Professionals (Level 2)

This course is designed for health professions students who want to learn Spanish at an Intermediate-Mid level according to the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines. This course, taught in Spanish, will prepare health care practitioners to achieve a fluency and competence in medical Spanish through the practice of pronunciation, vocabulary, idioms, and grammatical structures, all within the context of the medical and health-related professions. Focus is placed on role-playing activities and dialogues that simulate the most common medical scenarios. At the end of the course, students will have acquired in-depth vocabulary related to the body, medications, illnesses and other relevant terminology, as well as language to use in clinical situations, like instructions during a hospital visit. Students will expand their knowledge and practice with advanced linguistic skills and cultural sensitivity to better understand and treat patients with a Hispanic cultural background.
