Spanish and Cultural Immersion CME
at Hospitalito Atitlán

Physicians can improve their Medical Spanish and learn more about Maya customs and culture at Hospitalito Atitlán’s five-day Spanish and Cultural Immersion CME course.
    Students will receive one-on-one Medical Spanish instruction. They will learn to perform a variety of medical tasks in Spanish, as well as learn how to better connect with patients from other cultures.

This CME is perfect for people who have mastered basic Spanish communication through study and/or travel and would like to immerse themselves in the language. It also engages students in the Maya experience, helping them to better connect with patients from foreign cultures. Learn more.
