Canopy helps your program stand out and your students thrive

The demand for bilingual healthcare workers has never been greater, but few effective medical Spanish solutions exist today. Those that do are either low quality, too expensive for tight university budgets, or are difficult for busy students to fit into an already packed schedule.

Our award-winning, online, self-paced products not only deliver the best online medical Spanish training for your team in the most flexible way possible, they’re also designed to fit neatly into your program’s curricula to help your program and students stand out from the crowd.

Empower your students to demonstrate their bilingual skills and provide a roadmap for improvement

CanopyCredential is the only scenario-based medical proficiency assessment that was specifically designed to align with ACA Section 1557, helping your students stand out as residency or job candidates. Employing a simulated oral proficiency interview (SOPI) approach and developed by a team of linguists and psychometricians, CanopyCredential enables clinicians to demonstrate that they can effectively, accurately, and impartially communicate in a non-English language through spoken language skills and in real-life patient scenarios.

Scaling the Proficiency Ladder

CanopyCredential provides meaningful feedback for exam-takers, giving them the scaffolding to climb the proficiency scale for continuous improvement. Even if someone has not achieved qualified bilingual staff (QBS) status, the CanopyCredential Scorecard offers a nuanced breakdown of their fluency in the form of ‘can do’ statements so that they are mindful of their strengths and limitations when interacting with patients with limited English proficiency.


Bringing regulatory awareness to your students in a simple, easy to understand format

CanopyCompliance is a one-hour, online professional development course that transforms abstract compliance laws into easy-to-understand lessons. It employs a scenario-based teaching method that mimics real-life encounters with patients with limited English proficiency (LEP) and their family members.

Turn practice into action

At the end of the course, participants complete a Personal Action Plan that translates their newly acquired understanding of the law into actionable steps towards reducing language barriers in the workplace. Canopy’s suite of resources provides them with ongoing support to achieve the goals set in their plans.
