SPANISH LANGUAGE FOR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS

Event Overview: Each April, CHAMPS offers medical Spanish language training for clinicians at Region VIII health centers. This training 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.

In addition to the traditional four-day Medical Spanish Course for Beginner and Intermediate Spanish Speakers, three new two-day Spanish language courses were added in 2021: Medical Spanish for Advanced Spanish Speakers, Spanish for Oral Health Providers, and Spanish for Behavioral Health Providers. In 2020 and 2021, all courses within the Spanish Language for Health Care Professionals training were held via Zoom.

Please check back in early 2022 for information on the 2022 event. Please contact the CHAMPS Clinical Quality Improvement Director with any questions.
