Description: Spanish for Medical Professionals - Learn Medical Spanish in the Pop-Wuj Clinic by immersing yourself into the culture of Guatemalan (elective rotation)
Since June 2002, Pop Wuj has offered a Medical Spanish Program for medical students, providers, public health professionals, and other healthcare practitioners (e.g. doctors, nurses, paramedics). For years we have attracted a growing number of healthcare students and professionals who would like to learn Medical Spanish. The Medical Spanish Program provides health and medical education as well as clinical experience in Guatemala.
One of the most important goals of Pop Wuj’s Medical Spanish Program is to increase students’ cultural competency in addition to their Spanish language skills. To deliver healthcare in a compassionate way, with the knowledge of the culture and history of the population one works with, is an essential value to Pop Wuj’s vision of the Medical Spanish Program.
This special program is offered all year round, beginning the first and third Monday of each month and continues for at least four weeks.
