Many of our schools have programs designed for medical professionals. Some of these can be adapted to any area of health care. Most of the programs include possibilities for medical shadowing or clinical volunteer work.
For three years to different locations Language Link organized a course of Spanish for Diabetes Educators which qualified for continuing education units. This group of up to 30 in size studied in a customized course in Cuernavaca, Guadalajara and Oaxaca, Mexico. We also have an annual Medicine/Nursing program in Cuernavaca through the University of Wisconsin. Please contact us if you would like us to organize a course for a group in any field of health care. If you are the organizer of a group of 10 or over, we can often get many complimentaries for you.
If you want to join an already organized group or private class in the medical field, please see the following schools. Please note that some may specific start dates. If you want to do volunteer clinical work, these are usually arranged by request with advance notice.
