Given the large Spanish-speaking population in the Las Vegas area, the need for current and future healthcare professionals to speak Spanish has never been greater. 

This series will train current and future medical professionals (nurses, pharmacists, physicians, dentists, physical therapists, medical assistants, etc.) to speak and understand Spanish in a healthcare setting by focusing on oral communication and listening strategies. You can expect to learn general medical vocabulary, beginning grammar structures, pronunciation, communication strategies, and cross-cultural issues.

Knowing Spanish will help you provide better care to Spanish-speaking patients and bolster your resume if you are seeking employment or applying to graduate, professional, or medical school. 

This Program is Perfect For

Healthcare providers, medical assistants, and other professionals who want to better understand and speak to Spanish speaking individuals in a healthcare setting.
