I think all of them require Spanish. However, I think you can still apply as long as you gain fluency in Spanish before matriculation.

Considering most (if not all) of them do their interviews in Spanish, I'm guessing no...

If you got in, you would be going to a medical school where the entire patient population is spanish-speaking as well as the entire hospital staff and nursing staff and social work staff.. It's like asking if you can work in a hospital in Germany and only know broken German.

Remember, the most important part of med school is the clinical years, nto the pre-clinical years.
