Quality healthcare is not available to everyone in Ecuador. People, especially in rural areas, have to go travel great distances in order to receive medical treatment. The key to quality medical care is communication and cultural empathy. Seeking medical help can be very frightening to non-English speakers and being able to communicate in their own language can be all it takes to get them through the door.
Escape to Ecuador has partnered up with various organizations and language schools to create and provide a specialty Spanish course which is designed specifically for those working in the health care industry. Our course is comprehensive and includes everything from Medical terminology to dealing with cultural issues. Our Medical Spanish course provides you the tools to build a good relationship with your Hispanic patients, which will undoubtedly improve your ability to diagnose and treat patients in Spanish.
