Spanish for Health Professionals Certificate

Only available to currently enrolled Drexel students.

The Spanish for Health Professionals certificate prepares students to engage Spanish-speaking populations in the field of healthcare. It offers a critical advantage to health professions students (College of Nursing and Health Professions, Public Health, Pre-Med) who will be much better positioned in the job market if they can certify their ability to use Spanish in the workplace and engage with patients in culturally sensitive ways.
