BMS 472: Spanish for Pharmacists

Biomolecular Sciences

The Hispanic or Latino(a) population now comprises 18 percent of the population of the United States, and Mississippi is among the states with the fastest growing Hispanic population. In order to better serve the health care needs of the U.S. population, pharmacists and health professionals should reflect more cultural and linguistic competence. This course is designed to provide intermediate to advanced professional Spanish communication skills for the pharmacist. The context-related vocabulary and expressions will include those used during the initial patient encounter, data collection, and patient consultation directions (drug effects, cautions, adverse events warnings, directions, insurance).
