The program we have developed for medical professionals combines the regular Spanish immersion program with medical-specific Spanish and cultural training. Morning group classes never have more than six students, with experienced and college-educated Spanish teachers. After your morning classes, you will find yourself engaged in a wide variety of medical-oriented activities in the afternoon.
Clinical Shadowing is the main portion of the medical package is clinical shadowing in either a hospital or health clinic. You can observe the similarities and differences between these clinics and those in the US. Many students also choose supplemental private Spanish lessons, in addition to the standard group course, to focus on particular needs or on "Medical Spanish" (such as role-playing).
In addition to the special program, students are encouraged to participate in the many Spanish Immersion activities, such as salsa lessons, weekend trips, etc.
