Medical Spanish Courses

The CRLA medical program was designed for any Spanish student related to the Health Area. The goal is to become familiar with the medical vocabulary in Spanish and have the necessary tools to interview patients, explain or discuss medical issues in Spanish and even serve as translator at clinics and/or hospitals.

Our program teaching material was designed by highly experienced staff. The text begins with two introductory modules which provide lexical bases and dialogue examples that will facilitate any doctor – patient relationship situation. The program has eight modules divided by systems: Skeletal, Digestive, Respiratory, among others.

For every system, the teacher will explain the vocabulary, how the system works, common diseases that affect it and the cross-examination that must be done to any patient suffering from any condition related to each particular system.

The last unit of the textbook is about the cultural importance of medicinal plants in Latin America.
