Improve your speaking and listening skills and communicate effectively with the Hispanic population in your field with our Spanish Today for Medical Professionals seminar. This 6
hour seminar begins with some basic Spanish which teaches how to greet a patient, asking them informational questions, schedule appointment, etc. After the students get a foundation built with the basic Spanish, we move onto Medical Spanish which teaches the interior and exterior body parts, how to talk about pain, the pain scale, asking about symptoms, family history, and many vocabulary phrases for specific medical areas.
