Online course provides Spanish lessons for healthcare professionals

Healthcare professionals who need to converse with Spanish-speaking patients can learn the essentials or brush up on their skills with a new online course from Montana State University. The course is designed for both students who have little or no previous Spanish language training and more advanced Spanish learners with a targeted focus on conversation used in healthcare settings. Students will practice conducting medical interviews in Spanish and talk with guest-speaking Latino and non-Latino medical professionals. Students also will explore cultural competencies of Latino medical issues in and outside the United States. Article
