About the Center for Global Health Education learning through meaningful partnerships

UTMB works with Adventure Education Center to offer Medical Spanish rotations in multiple locations in Costa Rica.

Medical Spanish Programs*
AEC Spanish Institute's medical Spanish program is one of the longest ongoing and most beneficial programs of its kind in Costa Rica. Classes start every Monday of the year. The program was designed so that medical professionals, medical students, and anyone with a general interest in Spanish in the medical workplace can learn the medical Spanish terminology and Spanish speaking patient interaction skills so necessary to establish or improve their ability to diagnose, take patient medical histories, and better relate to their patients and their families in a culturally sensitive manner.

*Students partcipating in this program are NOT eligible for UTMB Global Health Scholarships.
