Does anyone know where I can learn Spanish for Medical Professionals? Thank you for any direction you all can provide me. Community college is too expensive for me.

Op's post is a bit dated, but there are prob many currently out-there who would find that improved Spanish speaking skills would be beneficial for career and generally social use. In my neck of the woods, I have freq seen specific Spanish for Healthcare Professionals courses at my local Comm College.
I did what my cousin did for his community volunteer position - I bought an inexpensive Spanish audio learning course and would play it in my car back and forth to work (one hour commute each way). My cousin is pretty much fundamentally fluent now- I did just so-so.
Back in high school, I got a 1 year subscription to Readers' Digest in French. I kept the magazines for a while as I plodded thru them even though I had studied advanced French. One can really pickup on the language reading a simple enough publication like RD.
I also bought French Christmas albums and general music in the past. And I have a five disc French TV program, Count of Monte Cristo, with Gerard Depardieu. (I just LOVE those tapes.) I still have my French version novel too that I flip through.
Those techniques for immersion in general language are extremely helpful even if fluency isn't quite there. The language DOES NOT sound foreign after a while.
