The Applied Medical Spanish group hosts an intermediate-level and advanced-level medical Spanish elective each year. The class usually meets once a week and is taught by a Spanish-speaking physician or professor. In addition to the classes, students are able to further practice their skills in the SIM center with a Spanish-speaking standardized patient. In previous years, students have gone on a field trip to learn about Cleveland's Latinx history to places such as: MetroHealth Hospital, Supermercado La Plaza, La Panaderia El Caribe, etc. We provide additional ways to improve Spanish language skills, such as a conversation hour over lunch and book clubs in Spanish. We also look for outreach opportunities in the Cleveland area, hoping to pass along real-world opportunities to practice your skills and engage in the community!
