Course Overview:

Interacting with Spanish-speaking patients may arise frequently in a Medical Front Office position. In a medical career, lacking basic knowledge of the Spanish Language can be inefficient and dangerous. Saving someone’s life is difficult when you don’t understand what they are saying. Taking this course will boost your communication skills in the workplace, as well as make you more comfortable and productive.

Spanish for the Medical Front Office is a self-paced, online occupational Spanish conversation course that solves the problems of miscommunication. Students will learn basic reception terms to greet their patients, as well as insurance and general medical terminology.  

This Spanish course will teach medical front office professionals:

  • How to ask for a patient’s information to fill out a form
  • Crucial phrases that express the patient’s physical state
  • How to learn a patient’s medical history and obtain insurance information

Students will build their workplace Spanish vocabulary and conversation skills by learning with pictures, native-pronunciations, readings, and quizzes, as well as cultural tidbits along the way.
