Medical Spanish Costa Rica
Medical Spanish

Our MedTreks Medical Spanish Curriculum was designed by medical professionals who work full time in the hospital and clinic setting and know which are the most important areas of Medical Spanish to cover. We design our courses to be high-yield and applicable to the hospital and clinic setting. We focus on three key areas:

  • Patient Intake & Triage 
  • Anatomy & Patient Assessment 
  • Most Common Chief Complaints 

If most medical professionals are proficient in the above areas, their Medical Spanish will take them very far in their clinical practice.
