Medical Terminology for Interpreters
Prepare for national medical interpreter certification — interpreters of all languages welcomed!
Become a Trained Professional and Certified Medical Interpreter
This two-day workshop on Medical Terminology for Interpreters is offered by A Voice – Language & Training Services. Two national job surveys/analyses showed that medical terminology is a critical component of the healthcare interpreter’s performance and medical terminology will be tested for both national medical interpreter certifications. This one-day workshop combined with the five-day The Community Interpreter International training can prepare interpreters for entry-level careers as medical interpreters, as well as meet the requirements for working interpreters preparing to take the National Board Certification exam (CMI).
The day is packed with interactive activities that focus on Greek and Latin roots and affixes, medical specialties, six body systems (with some anatomy and physiology), diseases and disorders, symptoms, medical abbreviations and more. The session includes a 136-page published handbook (retail: $40) that contains Spanish translations for almost all the terms and activities; however, the workshop and handbook were also designed for interpreters who speak any other language. Also included is a continental breakfast and afternoon snacks and refreshments. This enjoyable 2-day workshop is also invaluable preparation for anyone who seeks to become a nationally certified medical interpreter!
We will be offering a 2-day version of this workshop.
