SPANISH LANGUAGE TRAINING

Event Overview: CHAMPS offers medical Spanish language training for clinicians at Region VIII health centers each April. 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. All courses within the Spanish Language for Health Care Providers training will be held via Zoom and a camera is required to participate.

In addition to the traditional four-day Medical Spanish Course for Beginner and Intermediate Spanish Speakers, three two-day Spanish language courses will be offered: Medical Spanish for Advanced Spanish Speakers, Spanish for Oral Health Providers, and Spanish for Behavioral Health Providers.

The 2024 Spanish Language for Healthcare Providers courses have now concluded. Please check back at the end of the year for 2025 dates.

If you have any questions, please contact the CHAMPS Clinical Quality Improvement Director.
