Advanced Medical Spanish | Denver Colorado
Advanced Medical Spanish is perfect for the person who speaks Spanish confidently, but who needs some tweaking and refining while learning relevant vocabulary for clinical settings.
Anschutz Medical Campus: Mondays, August 28 – December 4 (3:00-4:50p)
Early Registration Sale Ends 8/31/17
Advanced Medical Spanish is a conversational and topic-based class that addresses everyday clinical scenarios and common patient interactions.
You will review various advanced level grammar topics that are usually challenging for both 2nd language learners and heritage Spanish speakers (subjunctive mood, formal commands, conditional tenses, preterit vs imperfect, por vs para, etc). The vocabulary topics are highly adapted to the individual students in the class. In addition to the essential vocabulary to describe human anatomy, common signs and symptoms, medical history, pharmacy and dosing instructions, etc; you will have the opportunity to explore vocabulary relating specifically to your area of practice.
This advanced medical Spanish class is conducted entirely in Spanish, and the expectation is that you will be using Spanish exclusively in class.

Reflections from recent Advanced Medical Spanish learners:
I liked how we went over SOAP notes and how to introduce yourself when doing a medical interview. Practicing the medical interview was the best. Joseph
I really liked studying systems as it helped me organize the vocabulary that we learned. Anonymous
I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the professors understanding of our rigorous schedule. I also enjoyed simply being in a Spanish-speaking environment. Phillip M.
I liked that we had a lot of open discussion. The clinical medical vocabulary and common phrases that are appropriate to use in a hospital are probably most useful to me. Anonymous
The clinic sessions with scenarios is definitely the best. The grammar exercises are good as well. However, I’d love to have more clinic sessions because it helps to build fast the needed vocabulary and speaking skills. Diem C
