BOZEMAN – An online course from Montana State University gives health care professionals and students in pre-health programs a foundation for working and conversing with Spanish-speaking patients.
This course is designed for students who have some previous Spanish language training. A targeted focus on both Latino culture and vocabulary and conversation used in healthcare settings makes it unique, challenging and beneficial to Spanish learners of all levels.
The course, “SPNS 250-801,” begins Aug. 24 and is offered completely online. Students do not need to be enrolled in an MSU program of study, and off-campus professionals are encouraged to register. The course offers three undergraduate credits in Spanish.
Students will apply specifically targeted sets of Spanish vocabulary/grammar to medical conversation; practice conducting medical interviews in Spanish; and engage with guest-speaking Latino/non-Latino medical professionals. The course also helps students develop cultural competency of Latino medical issues in and outside the U.S., and establishes a foundation for further study of the Spanish language and Latino culture.
