Medical Spanish Track
Patient-physician communication and the ability to speak in the patient’s preferred language is a key component to successful patient care. Almost 30% of Texans speak Spanish at home, highlighting the importance of increasing the number of physicians who are fluent in medical Spanish. The Medical Spanish Track for family medicine residents has been developed to train track participants in delivering culturally responsive and respectful care to Spanish-speaking patients in their native language.
