By María Antonia Anderson de la Torre

¿Cómo se siente?: Conversational Spanish in Medical Settings will guide intermediate Spanish college students through real life situations where they will be able to practice the language and prepare for interactions in Spanish with Hispanic patients. There is an emphasis on topics such as obstetric violence, and traditional medicine in Latin America, and deliberately provided multiple situations with, for example, male nurses or Black female doctors, to highlight and promote the need to talk about the lack of diversity in the medical field.

The book is structured in a way that will allow them to follow the path of a patient, from the moment the patient arrives to the hospital, going through the doctor's appointment, a hospitalization, until postoperative follow up, with phone calls and emails. In the final chapter, they will be able to focus on their own medical field, and they will be able to study specific vocabulary and medical situations connected to it. This will be particularly useful because they will gain linguistic expertise, vocabulary and they will enter specific situations connected to the medical area they are specializing in. This book will provide training in conversational Spanish, with a review of key grammar, medical interpreting, and service learning.
