Mission Statement

The focus of the Medical Spanish Club is to provide a safe learning environment for future clinicians and other health providers where they can learn medical terms, concepts, possible questions and interactions in Spanish that they can use with future patients. I’ve personally seen how language can be a barrier between people, and with this club we are able to put our grain of sand to prevent that from happening when the time comes.
