For health service professionals, knowledge of medical Spanish is no longer an option but a necessity. Unless they have a reasonable level of Spanish, communication with patients whose only language is Spanish will be difficult. Courses in medical Spanish are therefore hugely relevant today. The minor in medical Spanish is intended for all future health service professionals, including physicians and their assistants, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, medical laboratory technicians, emergency medical technicians, medical aides, medical interpreters, healthcare industry professionals and psychologists.

The minor comprises one linguistic component, one elective component, one translation/interpretation component and three profession-specific linguistic components.
