BIOL 6502: Intermediate Medical Spanish

Student Leaders: 
Ruth McGovern, MD20; Aida Alazar, MD20
Faculty Adviser: 
Nidia Schuhmacher

The Intermediate Medical Spanish course will be taught by a graduate student and will be conducted entirely in Spanish. The course will be based on the medical interview and physical exam skills taught in Doctoring I & II and will focus on medical vocabulary supplemented by grammar review when relevant. By the end of the course students are expected to have the receptive and productive language skills necessary to conduct a full medical interview and check basic vital signs in Spanish. One year of college Spanish or equivalent is recommended.
