Course Description: 
1This course is designed for students studying to become medical professionals and who require training in Spanish to serve Spanish-speaking clients in hospital or clinical settings.  In addition to exploring medical terminology related to the human body, illnesses, and treatments, we will also study interview techniques for Spanish-speaking patients and practice interpretation in medical settings.  There will be strong emphasis on developing speaking and listening skills.  The course will take place at the CEDEI in Cuenca, Ecuador.  In addition to academic work, students will live with Ecuadorian families, attend practical sessions in local clinics, hospitals, and medical offices.  We will have excursions to local indigenous villages and historical sites near Cuenca. This course satisfies the immersion requirement for the Spanish minor at Luther. Enrollment priority will be given to Spanish minors/majors.
