Immersion Spanish Courses at Ixchel Spanish School

Medical Spanish

Due to the growing Hispanic population in North America and elsewhere, doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals often find themselves in situations where they need to communicate with patients who speak Spanish only. Speaking Spanish is becoming very important to give better service to your Spanish speaking patients and may even be of vital importance in emergency situations.

We have developed a special Spanish course for medical and healthcare professionals that will enable you to communicate clearly and efficiently with Spanish speaking patients and their families.

Ixchel was the first Spanish school in Antigua Guatemala that developed a special course for doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals. We have expanded and perfected Medical Spanish for several years and received much praise from participants who feel that this course goes a long way towards preparing them for their work with Spanish speaking patients.

Key to the success of this course is that you will not simply memorize lists of words and phrases. That's a necessary part of it, of course, but we don't stop there! Exercises, practice conversations and roll play with your teacher will help you to practice your skills in realistic situations and boost your confidence in your ability to communicate effectively with native Spanish speakers.
