Online Courses


We are offering Webinars! (On-line seminars)

Rios Associates has been teaching CME Medical Spanish and Cultural Competency Workshops since 1983, in both the United States and Mexico.

Now you can participate in the same course on line. The reason for our success is due to the extremely well organized, logical and concisely presented program developed by Dr. Joanna Rios.

Our materials are specifically and exclusively designed for medical professionals’ immediate practical application with their patients.

Due to the ever increasing cost of travel, lodging, time constraints and budget cuts, CME monies are not as readily available. Thus, Rios Associates has elected to develop the same program as our Intensive CME Seminars in the form of “Webinars”.

In our Webinars, you will use the same materials as in our Intensive live seminars, and will receive instructions, explanations and guidance with LIVE instructors over the Internet. You will also participate in role plays, exercises and Q&A sessions during the LIVE meetings.

You can also visit our Website for Live 4-day seminars and to purchase our materials.

How It Works?

The instructor and student make an Internet connection at a mutually agreed time via Skype. The Webinar meetings are conducted on a one-to-one basis; thus, allowing for much flexibility. Skype allows us to share audio and video as well as tools such as whiteboards, presentations and pictures. In addition to it is free.

    These Webinars serve to:
  • • review specific subjects that you wish to practice
  • • take the same course we present on-site while you travel or when other limitations may prevent you from doing so in person.
  • • follow up and practice sessions for those that would like to continue learning Spanish.

What you will need

  • A computer - Laptop or desktop.
  • A high speed Internet connection.
  • Our book, Complete Medical Spanish, Second Edition.
  • Our audio files in MP3 format loaded in a USB Flash drive.
  • Before the first lesson you will need to download a free program from Skype and set up an account (also free).
  • A computer video camera is preferred but not necessary.
  • A microphone and speakers or an Internet headset.
  • Access to a quiet location.


The objectives of the Webinars are the same as those of our live seminars.

I have learned a tremendous amount at each of the three Rios workshops that I have attended over the years... I have given medical lectures in Spanish in México, Argentina and Chile. Many thanks to Rios Associates - they do a great job.
