The medical Spanish program we have developed for medical students and professionals combines an intense

Spanish immersion program with medical-specific Spanish and cultural training.  Group Spanish classes never

have more than six students, and are taught by experienced college-educated Spanish teachers.  After your

morning classes, you will
find yourself engaged in a wide variety of medical-oriented activities in the afternoon.  

The medical shadowing component allows participants to shadow a local doctor in a hospital or clinic, two times a

week for up to four hours per session.  We also offer
private lessons with a special emphasis placed on medical

terminology and mock-clinical situations.
