Soy Doc Molly.
I am a practicing hospitalist, inspired by the people of Latin America. On my days off, I create medical Spanish lessons with my teachers from Latin America. Our Spanish audio lessons are made for busy healthcare workers on the go. We gain fluency through listening AND speaking. Therefore, our audio lessons:
- Are interactive.
- Are made with native Spanish-speakers!
- Can be done on the go, while walking or commuting.
- Present authentic clinical scenarios written by healthcare providers.
- Help us connect with our patients.
- Go beyond the basics. (OJO: Most of our lessons are intermediate to advanced. If you are just beginning, check out our Basic Medical membership.)

"Soy maestra de español desde hace 10 años. Me encanta enseñar. Me gusta que el estudiante se sienta cómodo en las clases. Yo me puedo adaptar a las necesidades del estudiante. Por ejemplo, si quiere estudiar español para trabajar en un hospital, para ganar un examen de la universidad, para viajar, etc."
I met Eliza while studying at the San Pedro Spanish School in Guatemala, and she really does adapt to your needs. I LOVE creating lessons with Eliza!
"He trabajado como profesora de español por 5 años, principalmente enseñando español, aunque también he enseñado portugués y inglés."
I met Gloria through La Comunidad, an online Spanish school for intermediate to advanced students of Spanish. If you want to master your conversational skills and always speak with correct grammar, take classes with Gloria. She knows her stuff!
"Me llamo Francisco y he sido maestro de español por mas de 14 años. Me encanta compartir y ayudar a mis estudiantes a alcanzar sus objetivos con el idioma Español."
Francisco helped Sonja and me put together our lessons covering ADHD and Dentistry.
Francisco now runs his own Spanish school! Sonja has taken classes at his school and highly recommends it. His lessons include adventures around beautiful Lago Atitlán and learning about the Guatemalan culture.

What Members Say...
Very well organized content with thorough explanations.
I tried 4 websites/courses before I found this, and the quality of content curation and presentation is really the best. I've shared it with my fellow residents since we're starting training in a majority Hispanic area.
Very timely with what I’m seeing in my office.
Very helpful in communicating with my patients
"I am a premium member because not only am I learning so much from the content provided but I am so appreciative of all of the effort that goes into this podcast. The Medical Spanish for Covid-19 is fantastic. I like to listen to the Doc Molly lessons on my phone while I hike in the mountains in the early morning."
Your podcasts are truly wonderful. I have learned more practical Spanish from your podcasts than any other resource I’ve used previously.
This program is the most helpful one I have found as a medical interpreter. It has been so valuable for me. I’m so grateful to Doc Molly for all she does.
Thanks a million for these amazing podcasts. This is by far the most helpful resource for medical Spanish out there. The work you create is so important to address language barriers in healthcare.
I LOVE these lessons! Since finding your podcast two days ago I've already become more confident. Gracias! I love how the interview gets presented, then broken down. I am finding it very helpful that each podcast builds on the last one with repetition so my brain is beginning to fill with Spanish. I like the variety of topics, the unique presentation, and explanations about different colloquialisms etc.
“Thank you Molly! Loving all the work you do. I'm in emergency medicine and I find it incredibly helpful. Looking forward to the trauma section!”
Thanks to your website I was able to pass the interpreter exam to be a certified Spanish speaking physician through the clinic!
It is a tremendous blessing to have a professional in medicine teaching lessons on relevant Spanish knowledge for the medical field. It is something I have struggled with for quite some time.
I LOVE your podcasts, so glad I bought the subscription. I listen to them all the time on my way to work on the train. Then, I’ll be in a meeting and pick up on stuff you chatted about in the podcast that very morning.
I am largely self-taught in Spanish... the only formal instruction that I've had is one year of college Spanish about 25 years ago.
Instead of formal study, I have used resources like Doc Molly's podcast (in its various iterations). Her lessons are topical and weave grammar lessons into the core medical Spanish. I appreciate that she incorporates native-speakers into her lessons and that she tries to address geographical variations, as well.
Coupled with some additional written resources, this is what you need to develop basic or advanced medical Spanish skills.
"I subscribe to a number of different Spanish language programs and Doc Molly by far is the most helpful in terms of what I need to talk about on a daily basis. The lessons on Covid-19 are absolutely invaluable! I have been unable to find anything similar anywhere. So helpful!"
"Thank you so much for making excellent quality content. I'm an emergency and EMS physician and I listen to your podcasts on my drives to rural sites. I'm renewing for yet another year and love it."
Wonderful classes... the most helpful I have ever taken, priceless. I listen to you daily on my dog walks and really learn and enjoy.
I'm very grateful for your podcasts as I work toward my interpreting certification. They have been extremely insightful and provided me with information I otherwise might not have learned on my own.
You have no idea the impact this podcast has made in my ability to speak Spanish. Daily there are flashes of “I learned that from Doc Molly”. Thank you.
I just bought your basic medical podcast and I’m loving it. I’m an interpreter and there is NOTHING as helpful as your podcast.
For years I have looked for resources to help me continually improve my (relatively) advanced understanding of grammar AND to help me converse about healthcare issues. As I prepared to become a medical interpreter, I found many resources with information about terminology that didn’t help me understand colloquial ways in which people converse about health issues. Molly’s podcasts have been a godsend! They are substantive but short enough for me to listen to during my daily commute. They go in-depth—I listen to the approximately 20 podcasts on the subjunctive repeatedly and recommend them to advanced students in my Spanish classes. Her interviews on healthcare topics are extremely helpful, and I love her breakaways, adding commentary on things native speakers said in the interviews. ¡Muchísimas gracias, Molly, y que nunca termines!”
Your podcasts have been an enduring, helpful, and enjoyable resource for me as I seek to better communicate and connect with Spanish speakers.
Love the audio lessons and having the written dialog if needed to refer to!
These lessons are priceless! Doc Molly senses where we struggle, gives multiple ways to say or remember phrases. has long enough and frequent enough podcasts that you can listen to while walking your dog, driving to work or on your computer. She repeats the Spanish after the native speaker, so we can hear it enunciated. She asks the questions we would ask the patient ourselves. She allows us to submit topics, and she does trainings on topics we need! I have tried many apps, podcasts, tutors, and never found anyone as “spot on” on how to teach a gringo as Doc Molly. She is an amazing teacher, tireless worker, and puts on podcasts that work! Best ever!
“I've been a subscriber since we moved to Miami 7 years ago and your podcasts have been invaluable to me as an Internist in military clinics here.”
The premium podcasts have been incredibly helpful for me. I love the interview style with native Spanish speakers and then you breaking apart the interviews and adding commentary. The organization of your podcast for learners is truly fantastic. This is exactly what I have been looking for.
“I am very grateful for finding your podcast as it’s already helped me tons. I really feel that all I’ve learned with my tutor up until now is coming together with your lessons.”
I just finished the subjunctive series. Yaaaay! It was so well done. I really enjoyed it. I look forward to every podcast. Thank you!
It’s absolutely the most helpful medical Spanish podcast I’ve found. It’s helped me prepare for the next steps in my career, and I’m really grateful for that.
I love your podcasts. I am a nurse studying for the Spanish Medical Interpreter certification from the NBCMI and I only wish I’d found your podcasts sooner. The dialogue is always one step ahead of my knowledge, which pushes me to learn but doesn’t overwhelm. The topics, vocabulary, native speakers, and real-life situations are fantastic and hold my interest. The podcast format makes it so I can go on a walk or drive and still study. I love how you incorporate the listener’s interaction by testing vocabulary and leaving space for us to interpret. I had been pushing off my oral exam because I didn’t feel like my studying efforts were helping before, now I’m set to take the exam in a few months. Of course, the podcast doesn’t just help me prepare for the exam, it also improves my knowledge for my interactions with Spanish-speaking patients at work, and that’s the best!
These podcasts are excellent! They’ve helped me so much as an interpreter. Thanks a bunch.
