Spanish for Health Care Workers

HISP 0490A S01 [CRN: 16760]

This course is designed to provide students with the linguistic and cultural competencies necessary to communicate with and help treat Spanish speaking patients with limited English. The course includes a general review of pertinent grammar and vocabulary relating to the health care professions, assessment, and vocabulary useful for establishing patient rapport. Students will practice communicating in common medical situations, conducting patient interviews, and increase their understanding of possible responses from patients. We will broaden knowledge of different cultures, explore health care systems/ professions in a variety of settings, and have pertinent speakers invited to class.
Please note this course does not qualify as a pre-requisite for study abroad or for HISP 0600. Students who complete 0490A successfully can continue in our program with HISP 0500 as the next level. This is an intermediate level language course so if you have taken a 600 course or above, you will be too advanced for this 400 level class.
