This winter, Pacific Union College is offering "Spanish for Health Care Professionals," an introductory course focused on communication in Spanish for EMT and other health service professionals. It was designed to complement the college's new Emergency Services program and is taken during emergency services students' second year of the program. However, the course is broadly targeted to those heading into the medical field who would like a basic working knowledge of Spanish with emphasis in health-related vocabulary and interaction with monolingual Spanish-speaking patients. The course presupposes no previous knowledge of Spanish. 

This three-credit course will be taught by professor Jessica Buller on Monday and Wednesday evenings (6:00-7:15pm) in the winter quarter, beginning January 5, and is scheduled to repeat next year, also during the winter quarter. For more information, contact Sylvia Rasi Gregorutti at srasi@puc.edu or 707-965-6510.
