This webinar will highlight the impact of patient-provider language concordance on clinical practice and health care delivery in an increasingly diverse population. We will specifically discuss the current state of medical Spanish curriculum in U.S. medical schools and resources available to help institutions assess their health and scientific workforce efforts to address cultural and linguistic competency. Participants will also learn about the Medical Spanish program at the University of Texas Medical Branch School of Medicine and discuss the components of medical Spanish skill evaluation and certification.
