These medical Spanish lessons are based on common clinical encounters written and recorded with my teachers from Latin America. We also interview real patients and providers from Latin America. In these interactive audio lessons, we cover basic to ADVANCED Spanish. In order to support this free podcast, I also offer member-only podcasts. In the interactive member lessons at docmolly.com, we take a deep dive into the Spanish you hear in the free lessons. We review the key vocabulary and grammar and interpret the key phrases between English and Spanish. This podcast is ideal for ANYONE (not just medical providers and interpreters) who wants to reach an advanced level through listening and speaking.

Invaluable resource

As a non native Spanish speaker volunteering as an interpreter in a free medical clinic, I find these premium medical lessons invaluable. I appreciate the additional grammar reviews, i.e. why the subjunctive is required, the use of an article in reference to a body part, etc. and the rating of the lessons from beginning to advanced levels. Although I am always in need of lessons, I’m delighted with the challenge of upper intermediate/advanced lessons. The lessons are well paced and the option to actually read the script helps clarify questions that are not always audible, as well as provides a reference as to how words are spelled. Bien hecho, Molly, y muchísimas gracias!

For intermediate learners

This a spectacular resource. Other reviewers have noted the extra features in the subscription service, which are very helpful but require subscription. I would add that Dr Molly states that the level of grammar for Medcial Spanish is intended for intermediate to advanced Spanish learners. If you’re new to learning Spanish, you should try Dr Molly’s Spanish Grammar podcast which is a free podcast aimed more for beginners.

zubc6 ,

Fantastic quality!

Every time I listen to this podcast, I learn so many practical (yet sophisticated) expressions!

Not only does Doc Molly have a fantastic personality, but she is also well versed in her field. Her grammatical and cultural explanations are impeccable, not only because she is gifted, but also because she spends time on these lessons!

Molly always provides ample time for us to respond, and she genuinely understands sound pedagogical techniques. This podcast is so interactive!

I am so glad that I found this podcast!

If you’re looking for high-quality information about medical Spanish, then you’ve come to the right place!

Thank you, Doc Molly!!! You are a gift!!!
