Basic Medical Spanish (MSCI-6106)

Director: Robert Casanova MD

Updated: 4/3/2013

 

The population of West Texas has a rich cultural heritage – 30% of our patients overall are Hispanic, rising to 80% in El Paso. Communication and professionalism are key elements of our curriculum. As the Spanish-speaking population of the US continues to grow, basic medical Spanish becomes increasingly important for the cultural responsiveness of our medical students to the health care needs of the Spanish-speaking population.

 

To meet this need the School of Medicine created a 15-hour web-based course, required of all Year 1 and 2 students, which includes two interactive sessions to be completed by March of Year 2. Grading will be Pass-Fail and will be entered on student transcripts.
