Hello everyone-
I'm writing a paper concerning an issue dealing with the hispanic community. I'm discussing healthcare and I want to make a suggestion in the paper that medical schools in areas with large hispanic populations (e.g. florida and california) should implement spanish as a pre req or as part of their curriculum. My question is, do any of you know if there are any schools that already have something similar to this (other than the puerto rican schools) or if there is somewhere that I might be able to find some helpful info on the subject? Thanks!

i believe medical schools in the vicinty of hispanic neighborhood have classes called medical spanish to help future doctors at least be able to communicate medically whats going on.
