SPANISH LANGUAGE INTENSIVE TRAINING

Spanish Language for Health Care Professionals

The 2018 Spanish Language for Health Care Professionals event has concluded. Please check back in early 2019 for information about next year’s event, held each spring in Denver, CO.

Event Overview: CHAMPS, in conjunction with Denver Medical Society, offers an annual medical Spanish language training for clinicians and clinical support staff at Region VIII health centers each spring. 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.  Only the beginner level is open for registration at this time.

Target Audience: The course is targeted for physicians, PAs, NPs, nurses, medical assistants, and other medical personnel.  Other types of health care professionals are welcome to attend, however it is important to note that only a limited amount of time is spent on terminology for other disciplines such as oral health or behavioral health.

REGISTRATION: The 2018 Spanish Language for Health Care Professionals event has concluded. Please check back in early 2019 for registration information about next year’s event.
