After two years of design and implementation, the Medical Spanish/Latino Health Elective (MSLHE) welcomed its first class during the 2013-2014 academic year! The MSLHE is an innovative three-year longitudinal course that aims to prepare students to deliver culturally-proficient and linguistically competent care to the Latino community.
"I love that the University of Cincinnati has this program that lets me grow as a doctor and a Spanish-speaker at the same time. It gives us the opportunity to develop fluency and help other medical students build their capacity, while gaining real-world experience making a difference for a special-needs population. This program is great for anyone hoping to work with the Latino community, either in the Cincinnati area, nationally, or internationally."

"MSLHE is a wonderful program for me because it allows me to get proficiency in medical Spanish and have continued education and practice in speaking and working with local Spanish speaking populations. I wanted to do this because I've been speaking Spanish since I was 13 and I love the language. This program gives me the opportunity to help an underserved population now and in future practice. It also gives my application an edge since Spanish speaking doctors are few and far between."
- Ellie Farr, Class of 2017
Joining the UCCOM medical spanish elective was a no-brainer for me after seeing the impact of translators through previous undergrad experiences volunteering at free clinics. Now as a future doctor, it's important to note that the Hispanic population in the US is growing at an exponential rate and the language barrier among many things is a huge obstacle towards the care of these patients. The flexible, well-rounded, and valuable educational experience I get through this program brings me closer towards building better rapport and connecting with Spanish-speaking patients in the effort to improve the healthcare they receive."
