Spanish-language Standardized Patient EncountersMarch 24, 2017
On Friday, March 24, Dr. Andrea Nate’s Spanish for the Medical Professions students completed their first Spanish-language Standardized Patient Encounters at A.T. Still University. During the encounters, students perform the roles of doctors for Spanish-speaking patients. In mock clinical consultation rooms, the student doctors performed standardized complete Spanish-language consultations in which they took the patients’ histories, vital signs (blood pressure, temperature, pulse, and respiratory rate), and arrived at conclusions regarding the patient’s conditions.
