Essential EM Spanish: Sample Materials

Below I demo how you’ll learn in Essential EM Spanish. This includes video, audio, cheat sheets, and a walk-through of the mobile app.

Hopefully this will give you a better idea of the look and feel of the course.  

If you still have questions afterwards, feel free to check out the FAQ page or send me a message.

Video Lessons

In each video, I walk you through the vocab for whatever chief complaint / part of the H&P we’re focused on.  

For example, the video below covers a headache review of systems. 

During the video, you’ll hear the phrases in English and Spanish. I’ll kind of quiz you as we go along. 

There are over 80 videos similar to this one, which you can go through at your own pace. 

(If you’re not a fan of video, you can learn the same vocab from the audio versions, cheat sheets, or the mobile app — see below.)

Headache: Review of Systems (video)

Audio Lessons

If you prefer, you can download the audio version of each lesson and listen instead.

It’s kind of like a podcast.  Listen wherever it’s convenient (car, gym, etc).

Feel free to follow along on the cheat sheets, course manual, or mobile app while you listen. 

Here’s a sample clip covering anatomy terms related to chest pain.

Chest Pain: Anatomy (4 minute clip)

Mobile App

The mobile app gives you constant and convenient access to all the core vocab in Essential EM Spanish.  

See the phrases and hear the pronunciation.  You can even use it at the bedside with a patient

The demo video below shows you how the app works on a smartphone, tablet, or computer.

(Technically it’s a “web app”, so you don’t download it from the app store. You just login to the website, on any device. And it looks like an app.)

Mobile App Demo Video:

If you prefer, here are a couple of screenshots from the app.

(Keep in mind the screenshots don’t show you everything; you could also scroll down to see additional chief complaints on the menu, or vocab phrases.)

Cheat Sheets

You’ll also get “cheat sheets” for each chief complaint.  

Each cheat sheet is a single page (front and back), with all the vocab you need to go through a basic H&P in Spanish for that chief complaint, and also explain your plan for testing / treatment to the patient.

The cheat sheets work well as a quick reference for review, or at the bedside with a patient.

(The sample below is just the front page.  The back side has more of the medical history, plus physical exam and testing/treatment. There’s a separate cheat sheet for explaining disposition.)

Course Manual - Table of Contents

If you’d like to know what else is in the Course Manual, here’s a screenshot of the Table of Contents.

(Almost every section listed there has an accompanying video and/or audio lesson, so you can use the learning method of your choice.)
