Spanish for Medical Students in Seville
A supplementary course perfect for anyone who needs or desires to learn Spanish in a medical context. Spanish for medical students in Seville is designed to prepare aspiring doctors and nurses with the vocabulary and practice required to interact with Spanish speakers in need of medical assistance.
If you’re unable to speak Spanish and have to deal with a Spanish speaking patient, then it’s likely you’ll have to use an interpreter. This can be costly, inefficient, and creates a barrier in the doctor-patient relationship. Spanish for medical students in Seville is designed to overcome these limitations and teach the necessary skills for students to be able to carry out a patient interview independently.
Seville is a paradise for anyone interested in authentic Spanish culture. As the capital of Andalusia, it is literally teaming with everything you would associate with this culturally rich region: flamenco dancing, rich wines, Moorish architecture and much more.
Its city centre is one of the oldest and best-preserved in the world. You can wander for hours through its winding cobbled alleyways and across its sprawling plazas. You’ll get lost all the time and you probably won’t even care, not when there are a thousand tapas bars and sun-soaked rooftop terraces to discover. 300 days of sunshine a year certainly doesn’t hurt either and studying doesn’t seem like such a chore when you can do it outside all year round.
Whether you come here for the culture, the history, or just the great weather, you are guaranteed to be very happy in Seville.
