Medical Spanish

  1. Does anyone know where a good site is to help me learn medical Spanish? I do know some Spanish, and can communicate with a patient with what little I know, plus using the Taber's. But, I would like to be able to do this more fluently and without the Taber's.
    Thanks!!!!

    One of the gals on another forum I visit has this link in her signature (re: medical spanish):

    http://www.vtmednet.org/medspanish/

    I can't get it to load on my browser here, so not sure what alll's available on that site. Might be worth checking out, though.

    Awhile back I had ordered some audiotapes in Medical Spanish instruction from Barnes and Noble which I listened to in the car. I found these pretty helpful and they weren't too expensive (around $20-40, depending on what you got).

    This site was a great help to me when I worked in a 90% hispanic community:

    I used the site to translate phrases and questions I used w/ my pts. I printed up the phrases and kept them in a notebook at work. It helped a lot.

    Ditto.

    Saw a book on Medical Spanish at the college bookstore today. Think it may have been in the "Made Incredibly Easy" line.

    I'm glad that you found some sites to help you. I would like to say that I had found something in a small (3X5) spiral bound notebook that had English to Spanish translations. They are the "[specialty] In My Pocket" series. The one I have is "Labor and Delivery In My Pocket." They have a lot of translations related to various specialties.
