This 4-week intensive Spanish language program teaches standard terminology and incorporates common dialect variants as well as aspects of Latino culture that can impact the patient’s health and interaction with the medical system. The contents of this program are based on research carried out in US medical settings.
Spanish is a diverse language that varies between regions and countries. While learning Spanish in Argentina, for example, would allow the student to better understand that variety, it may not help with others. In contrast, the Spanish now spoken throughout Latin America has its origins in the Spanish from Spain. In this program, the student will learn the basis of the differences between the varieties as well as common dialect variants used throughout Latin America.Visit geo.uoregon.edu/scholarships for more information
