CanopyLearn is the #1 Medical Spanish e-Learning Resource for Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine and DO Students.

Breaking down the language barrier in healthcare aligns with the core principles of DO programs, such as patient-centered care,  cultural competence, and effective, empathetic communication. Addressing language barriers can enhance patient-provider interactions, improve health outcomes, and contribute to more equitable and inclusive healthcare practices.

With CanopyLearn, you get coursework developed with support from the NIH and an interactive pedagogical approach that places students in real patient-clinician scenarios so they're ready to use what they learned right away. 


Research and development for various Canopy products has been supported in part by the awards from the National Institutes of Health listed here.


Through the establishment of this partnership, AOA and Canopy intend to work together to raise awareness in the healthcare community about the communication barrier, to equip frontline clinicians and administrative professionals alike with highly effective tools, and to ultimately elevate the quality of care for the underserved communities.
