This program was offered to me and a few other students at my university. With the desire to work in the healthcare field and as someone who has a strong passion for the Spanish language and culture, this was the perfect program. We worked with EdOdyssey and El Sol for approximately eight weeks, Monday-Thursday evenings and the staff and professors of the programs were always so kind-hearted, understanding, and compassionate with the content they delivered. I have been studying the Spanish language for eight years but never found course or attended a school that offered a medically-focused Spanish course. As I mentioned, this was the absolute perfect course that mixed my passions of the medical field and Spanish language.
Mondays and Tuesdays, we worked with El Sol through the language portion of the course and learned the doctor-to-patient dialogue in Spanish. Wednesdays and Thursdays, we worked with EdOdyssey through the cultural modules and learned more about the cultural aspects of a Latinx patient. Both parts of the program, language and culture were always intriguing and eye-opening, and I know I can apply the content that I learned throughout these eight weeks, into my future career.
Regarding the staff and professors of the EdOdyssey and El Sol, everyone was always so helpful, communicative, and understanding. Especially through a virtual format, if we faced some technical difficulties, we would work together to figure it out to ultimately have a beneficial experience. Few technical hiccups here and there, but overall the program ran smoothly.
In short, I would do this program all over again if I could. I loved every minute and every class we had, and want to give a huge thank you to Luis and Profesora Elsa!
