    This course will explore both the cultural and technical aspects of medical Spanish. We will compare the different health systems in Latin America (including Brazil) and their connections to both traditional indigenous and Western medicine, and study the linguistic tools necessary to work with the extremely diverse Latino communities throughout the United States, in Spanish. We will examine the roots of medical tradition in Spain and its connection to the Peninsula?s diverse religious communities, as well as analyze the phenomenon of ?mestizo medicine? (medical practice entailing different cultural practices) throughout the Spanish-speaking Americas. The course is given entirely in Spanish. All reading materials are in Spanish, and all papers and assignments/exams will be done in Spanish as well.
