MEDICAL SPANISH COURSES
WE WERE THE FIRST IN BOSTON WITH MEDICAL SPANISH CLASSES!
Are you a healthcare provider? Don't get an interpreter, take our class! We are the ones that introduced Medical Spanish to the Boston area! In 2007 GBSG’s founders started the medical Spanish program at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, then brought the approach to Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Understanding and effectively treating your Latino / Hispanic patients requires more than just speaking Spanish – we also provide cultural awareness and competency training to help providers interact with this population group effectively. GBSG offers Medical Spanish classes that will help you to:
• Understand and use a Spanish vocabulary, general and medical terms
• Confidently interview patients, take histories, conduct exams, prescribe medication, and give follow-up instructions in Spanish
• Have spontaneous dialogues in Spanish using verbs in the past, present, future, and command forms
• Become aware of major cultural characteristics that will help you to assess your patients more effectively. In this class you will learn to identify differences among specific subgroups in the US Latino and Latin American populations; and understand considerations related to recent immigrants vs 2nd or 3rd generations; as well as socioeconomic vs cultural differences.
