When deciding between vital choices about the wellbeing of a patient, any medicinal expert would say that having the full image of that patient is key. Yes, the lab test can give doctors a snapshot of the patient, but garnering the power to make a confident decision requires an ability to converse, communicate, and truly connect through language.
Medical Spanish Immersion Program at Tico Lingo is intended for simply that; to get students speaking and associating with the greater part of their patients on a level never thought conceivable.
