Casa de Salud Navigation Elective

The Casa de Salud Navigation elective is designed to provide students with an understanding of medical Spanish for use in a clinical setting. The role of a navigator is to provide support for patients in their experience with clinics. In short a navigator is a person who functions as a patient advocate. Students interested in taking this elective will be expected to complete an oral proficiency test with Maria Torres of Casa de Salud. Those enrolling are expected to demonstrate fluency in Spanish. Emphasis is placed upon medical vocabulary, cultural competency, and simulated patient/physician interactions.

The elective will be taught by a translator from LAMP for ten to twelve weeks. Class will be held twice a week for 60-75 minutes each. No homework will be given.
