With increasing numbers of Spanish-speaking patients entering the healthcare system every year, it's more crucial than ever for health professionals to learn medical Spanish. What's more, adding Spanish skills to your résumé can broaden your career horizons. But you're a busy person, and you don't have time to waste—so this course skips the "touristy" topics and focuses on the survival Spanish medical personnel really need to know in a medical setting.

Starting with the basics of Spanish pronunciation, you'll move right into simple words for everyday topics including colors, numbers, conversational phrases, family names, and words for asking questions. Next, you'll get to the meat of the course as you discover how to ask about pain, symptoms, medical histories, insurance, and patients' feelings. You'll also learn how to talk about body parts, diets, and medical care and treatment. Along the way, entertaining games and stories will help you practice your new vocabulary as you gain awareness about Latin American culture.

By the end of this course, you'll have a strong foundation in basic medical Spanish that you can build on for years to come. ¡Vamos! (Let's go!)

How will this course advance my career?

Learning Cloud programs have been developed in response to industry demand and are specifically designed to equip graduates with work-ready skills. Each participant will be trained and assessed in theory and in practical tasks and Real-world exercises are used throughout the program.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.

College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings

The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
