"I loved my time here. I had a very enriching learning experience at the hospital. Everyone wanted to make sure I was comfortable and they taught me a lot of things..."

Medical Spanish

We believe it is extremely important not only to learn Medical Spanish in a Spanish-speaking country but also to practice Spanish in a professional environment. Both concerns will help reinforce the student’s learning, and also enhance the effectiveness of his/her new knowledge.

1. Learn Medical Spanish and rotation in a local hospital: half-day Spanish lessons and half-day observational rotations for students and professionals in the medical field.

Participate a 4 to 12 weeks Spanish Course focused particularly on medical vocabulary. Students get their experience in periodic rotations in a local hospital/clinic (Clinica de la Fae, Hospital del IESS, Hospital Rodriguez Zambrano) in Manta accompanied by a medical resident.

2. Learn Medical Spanish and volunteering at Reneup (Centro de RehabilitacionNeurologicaPediatrica): The courses last a minimum of 4 weeks, and a maximum of 12 weeks. Students learn Medical Spanish in the morning and in the afternoon practice it as they volunteer at "RENEUP" a nationally recognized institution dedicated to the prevention and alleviation of infantile development disorders as well as neurological cognitive and sensory disorders.
