SPAN 125 – Basic Spanish fro Healthcare Professionals
Students interested in pursuing a degree in a health-related field, in their professions and during preparation for these professions, often come in contact with Spanish-speaking persons in their professional settings. Multicultural interactions in healthcare contexts have the potential of leading to miscommunication, with possible serious and even life-threatening consequences. This course is designed for students interested in building a foundation of basic oral proficiency in Spanish. It focuses on medical and healthcare terminology in Spanish, Hispanic cultures, and grammatical structures that will help pre-health undergraduates and health professionals better interact with patients who speak little English. The course will include everyday situations in which students will be requested to greet patients and family, establish rapport, conduct a clinical interview, and give recommendations on medications.
