As the Hispanic population in the United States grows to an estimated 132 million by 2050, more individuals are in need of linguistically diverse healthcare providers. An insufficient number of Spanish-speaking pharmacists and pharmacy technicians exist to meet the needs of the Spanish-speaking population.
This exciting new course, “Introductory Medical Spanish for Pharmacy Staff”, provides online training for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians – learning and applying the first steps in speaking Spanish to better communicate with a portion of the patients you care for each day.
