Community Health Fairs & Clinical Rotations
Putting your Spanish into practice
Community Health Fairs
Each month we run several community health fairs in economically deprived areas around the city. These are always in partnership with other organizations such as the national police, a local municipality or the prison service.
We particularly welcome health care professionals on these health fairs. Typically, we will see upto one hundred patients over 4 to 6 hours. And you will see patients of all ages and a wide variety of conditions. The consultations and medicine are provided to patients free of charge. Be assured, you will be well supported. Each health fair is managed by our own doctors with language teachers in support.
As you can imagine, these fairs also provide participants with a very intensive opportunity to practice the medical Spanish skills you are developing in the classroom each day.
Hospital elective rotations
The Medical Spanish CME credits are awarded for both the medical Spanish program and clinical rotations. Health care professionals can choose to take our medical Spanish alone or combine it with a clinical rotation. All main specialties are available for hospital rotations. The most popular being Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine and Ob/Gyn.
If you choose to combine a medical Spanish program with clinical rotation you will normally be at the hospital from 8 am to 12 noon and take medical Spanish classes from 2.30 pm to 6.30 pm.
