International Certificate in Cultural Competency and Communications in Spanish

Students who complete this certificate will be functionally bilingual and able to perform linguistically in a culturally sensitive manner within the biomedical environment. A required study abroad will allow students to gain experiential knowledge, expanding their cultural sensitivities and functionality in a foreign environment. A required independent shadowing experience in the biomedical environment will allow students to employ attained language skills in both social and formal settings. Because of limited resources, the program will have a cap on the number of students admitted.
