As the need for multilingual, culturally-sensitive healthcare professionals grows, so does the need for language programs that offer immediate practical applications

Emmanuel's Spanish for Health Care Professionals certificate is ideal for students planning a career in a health-related field. The Spanish for Healthcare Professionals language courses require little or no prior knowledge of Spanish and aim to provide a lower intermediate level of Spanish with a focus on medical terminology. In addition, the courses promote a better understanding of the culture of Latino communities in the United States by exploring topics related to identity, socioeconomic and demographic trends, healthcare disparities, patient-provider communications and healthcare accessibility, among others.
