Medical Spanish CME

We are serious about developing your medical Spanish

This is not a 4 day conference, or an app, providing you with medical Spanish vocabulary.  Instead, it is an immersion medical Spanish CME program in Peru.  Here program participants:

  • Take 4 or 7 hours per day of fun stimulating classes, taught by both local doctors and professional language teachers.
  • Live in comfortable accommodation with a friendly local family, who will further develop your language skills.
  • Use medical Spanish and clinical skills at weekly community health fairs attending to patients with a variety of conditions.

Medical Spanish for Physicians

Choose medical Spanish only or combine it with a clinical rotation

Each year we receive more physicians and healthcare professionals onto our medical Spanish programs.   The quality of our medical Spanish programs is reflected in the 108.25 CME credit hours the 4-week clinical elective and medical Spanish program is awarded by The American Academy of Family Physicians.

108.25 Credit hours are not just awarded for the time spent learning medical Spanish in the classroom, but also for the practical application of these language skills on clinical rotations each day.  This is for a full 4-week program.  If you only take the medical Spanish portion of the program, you can gain 60.25 CME credits over 4 weeks

We understand that many professionals do not have 4 weeks available to them. 2-week programs are also available.  Programs begin on Monday and are open all year round.

We make no additional charges for CME credits.  At the end of your program, your certificate will specify the number of completed hours.  You will then confirm this to AAFP who award the credits.
