So read on, and Vamos!
VAMOS Core Components
Academics: Through the support of the Dean of Students and the Spanish department, VMS currently offers three elective medical Spanish courses, catering to all language levels from the true beginner to conversational speakers.
Service: VAMOS encourages students to engage in various Spanish-speaking communities in Nashville through a wide variety of service opportunities.
Immersion: Immersion in Spanish-speaking environments, whether in Nashville or abroad, is an invaluable part of the VAMOS experience. We aim to help connect students with local immersion opportunities as well as coordinate opportunities for research and rotations abroad.
