SPANISH LANGUAGE FOR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS

Each spring in Denver, CO, CHAMPS, in conjunction with Denver Medical Society, offers an annual in-person medical Spanish language training for clinicians and clinical support staff at Region VIII health centers.  This four-day course is an intensive, conversational and medical Spanish workshop consisting of medical dialogues, role-plays, visual aids, cross-cultural discussions, and daily practice.  The course curriculum provides an experience of immersion learning, an approach that is highly suitable for those with limited time, and who must use their new language skills immediately with their Spanish-speaking patients.

The 2020 Spanish language course has concluded for this year. Please check back for information on the 2021 event.
