Spanish for Medical Professionals II

$115

with Tara Bradley Williams, York Adult Education

Calendar Jul 1, 2022

Do you feel like you have a pretty good sense of intro Spanish, but are ready to take it to the next level? This course picks up where the first course, Spanish for Medical Professionals, left off. If you didn't take the first course, no problem! This course is also for healthcare providers who already have a pretty good sense of Spanish, but just need more medical vocabulary to sharpen their skills.

You'll review the basic body parts and organs and also explore vocabulary and phrases related to insurance and expressions for patient assessments, exams, and communicating pain. You'll learn terminology found in tons of specialties, including pediatrics, geriatrics, mental health, OB/GYN, radiology, orthopedics, cardiovascular, oncology, physical and occupational therapies, dermatology, dentistry, and ophthalmology. The course will even talk about terms related to diet and discharge. It's a great Spanish foundation for healthcare workers!
