Further develop your Spanish language proficiency with a focus on health care and medicine. Traditional classroom instruction is combined with a shadowing assignment at a local hospital where you’ll learn how to improve physician-patient relationships while practicing your language with Spanish-speaking patients. Through a unique shadowing experience, you’ll complete 60 hours of clinical rotation at a local hospital in medical areas such as Internal Medicine, ER, Pediatrics, Orthopedics, Traumatology and the Intensive Care Unit. With a heavy focus on experiential learning, you’ll hear from guest specialists in the field, and benefit from the calendar of events at the hospital.
Apply early as enrollment is limited due to the clinical rotations. You must possess a high intermediate level of Spanish.
