Programme d'espagnol médical

Notre programme aide avec succès les professionnels de la santé à devenir des fournisseurs de soins de santé plus efficaces grâce au développement de la langue espagnole, jumelé à la possibilité d'accroître la sensibilité culturelle par une immersion complète dans la culture autochtone d'Amérique latine.

Tous les sujets de grammaire sont enseignés dans le contexte de la terminologie et des expressions médicales. Le but de ce cours est que les étudiants aient les compétences linguistiques nécessaires pour fournir des soins de santé de qualité aux hispanophones.

Toute personne qui travaille dans le domaine des soins de santé peut suivre ce cours spécialisé pour apprendre l'espagnol en mettant l'accent sur le vocabulaire médical.


Observation médicale

En plus des cours d'espagnol, les étudiants peuvent prendre l'observation médicale. L'observation médicale est facultative, disponible uniquement au CPI Heredia et au CPI Flamingo, limitée aux débutants avancés et supérieurs. L'observation permettra aux étudiants de pratiquer leurs compétences linguistiques nouvellement acquises à une clinique locale pendant les cours.

L'observation médicale donne l'occasion de voir les rouages internes (médecine générale) d'une clinique privée à San Joaquín de Flores et à Flamingo.

L'observation est offerte pour quelques heures par semaine et selon la disponibilité dans la clinique, de sorte que tous les arrangements doivent être pris au moins deux semaines à l'avance et l'horaire sera confirmé à l'étudiant directement au CPI Heredia et au CPI Flamingo le premier jour des cours.

Le premier jour à la clinique, un membre du personnel du CPI accompagne le participant pour les présentations.

Pour l'observation médicale, apportez :

  • Un document certifiant que vous êtes étudiant ou professionnel en médecine 
  • Une blouse blanche

"CPI was a great place to transform my knowledge of Spanish from high school grammar into a useful clinical skill.

We covered vocabulary, conversation, cultural issues and grammar that came up along the way all adapted to the level of the students in the class. Being able to observe a public clinic my last week further increased my ability to use Spanish in clinical situations, and living with local families was a fantastic learning experience for both language and culture.

The staff were great at taking care of anything I needed and made the whole experience very easy and low stress for someone traveling alone."

"My experience at CPI Flamingo has been wonderful. I have learned more Spanish in 5 days than I ever expected. The Medical Spanish Course will definitely be helpful to me as I begin my career in Nursing. Gabriela is a very good teacher. She is smart, warm, welcoming and she teaches in a manner that makes it easy to learn.

I have sincerely enjoyed my time here. I will miss Flamingo but I am excited to continue my studies at CPI Monteverde.

"I am a retired cardiologist and now volunteer in two charities both of which serve a high percent of Spanish speaking clients. I have always wanted to speak a second language, too, and after study in various institutions of learning available in Columbia, SC, I felt the need for greater fluency and believed that greater immersion and specific instruction in medical Spanish vocabulary would be valuable. I knew Costa Rica has been a stable, viable democracy for many years and I learned of CPI and its medical Spanish
program in a web search.

I have been so pleased with all my CPI encounters from e-mail correspondence to transport. But especially the drills and lessons in language fluency and grammatical accuracy have been just for what I had hoped. The teachers are knowledgeable and infinitely patient and pleasant. I was properly placed for my existing level of Spanish fluency.

The addition of clinical experience in the clinic in La Carpio demonstrated real life situations in which the vocabulary was put to practical use in my direct patient interviews.

My experience has been extremely helpful and positive. I can easily strongly recommend the program at CPI for all so interested and inclined."

"I gained valuable experience with the medical program. The Spanish classes are focused on medical terminology used in typical conversations with patients. I also had the opportunity to visit a public hospital and a private clinic to observe the differences between the public and private healthcare systems of Costa Rica. I applied my knowledge from class while interviewing patients in Spanish. It was a great opportunity for me to practice my medical Spanish while obtaining clinical experience."
