Welcome, University of Cincinnati
Medical Spanish / Latino Health Elective Students!

The UC Medical Spanish/Latino Health Elective (MSLHE) is one of several strategies to address a critical need in our community: a shortage of linguistically and culturally competent physicians caring for the growing number of Latino patients. Our goal is to prepare students culturally and linguistically to provide high quality care for Latino patients in the future.
