What do you need?

Do you need to speak Spanish in a medical setting, be able to have a small conversation before the medical encounter, understand your patients and their families, work with an interpreter but understand the conversation? I can create the course that best suits your needs.

How is your availability?

Are you very busy and you want to move at your own pace, little by little, in your spare time? I can offer you the method and resources that best suit your schedule and availability. With my Dosis de Medicina en Español courses, you only have to dedicate 10 minutes a day. You choose and set your learning pace.

What do you want to learn?

General medicine, pediatrics, or do you work in the ER? With my program you will learn everything you need for your daily medical practice with Spanish-speaking patients. We begin by accompanying the patient in all the steps of the medical visit and we continue learning practical cases from the different specialties.

How would you like to learn?

With my courses you will learn in a very communicative, practical and useful way. The entire focus of the class is geared towards practicing medical Spanish without realizing that you are studying. I like to make things easy for you.

You will learn and you will have a good time.

About me

I like my profession, the contact with Spanish-speaking patients and with health professionals. I like teaching, getting to know my students and creating a learning environment where everyone has a good time and time goes by quickly. My philosophy is to make things easy, to maintain a relaxed learning environment, without stress. In my courses everyone passes, because everyone learns and everyone improves their medical Spanish. Sometimes I have been told that the bad thing about the course is that it is over. I also feel sorry to finish each course and say goodbye to my students. But I know that they have learned and leave happy with the experience.

What my students say

¨This course was extremely helpful. Thank you for being an excellent instructor, tailoring the course to meet our needs and level of Spanish knowledge, and for using a variety of learning styles to teach the course. I highly recommend the course for other residents. I look forward to applying what I learned when working with Spanish-speaking pediatric patients and families in the future.¨

¨This was an absolutely phenomenal Medical Spanish course that exceeded my expectations. Ms. Gonzalez is a brilliant instructor and encouraged us to practice our Spanish throughout the course, correcting as appropriate with a nonjudgemental tone. I really valued practicing many medical encounters in Spanish and felt there was a perfect mix of vocabulary review, practice, reading Spanish articles, and Ms. Gonzalez sharing relevant info. All homework assignments were thoughtfully chosen and useful for learning.¨

¨This was an absolutely amazing class. It met all my wishes and goals for a medical Spanish course. Ana is a teacher that knows how to strike the balance between affirming and pushing. She clearly recognizes and conveys what information will be most important for us as we use Spanish in our particular context in the future.¨
