Medical Spanish Basics – Fall 2022

Effective communication is crucial in the provision of health. This class is designed to help healthcare workers communicate with Spanish-speaking populations. We will learn common phrases in a clinical/medical encounter and patient instructions, common adjectives to describe levels of health issues, common phrases related to health and wellness, and the role of cultural beliefs in the provision of health. This class is appropriate for healthcare providers, students in the health field, public health professionals, and interested students. Basic knowledge of Spanish is preferred but not required.

Class Location: University of Kentucky’s College of Nursing

Required Text: Spanish for Health Care Professionals, 4th edition, by William Harvey. Please purchase your own copy of the text.

Dr. Maria Gomez is a public health researcher and educator. Her research focuses on health disparities, minority health, and the social factors that influence health outcomes.
