Medical Interpreter

There is a critical need for trained medical interpreters! If you’re bilingual, have good speaking and listening skills, and enjoy working with people, you may have a future as a medical interpreter.

This 60-hour program provides working knowledge of medical interpreting, including standards of practice, ethics, HIPAA regulations, cultural competency, and medical terminology/vocabulary. Open to all languages, students must be fully bilingual and must be fluent in English and one other language.

Course is designed for those preparing for entry level careers as medical interpreters as well as for working interpreters preparing for the National Board Certificate exam. This program meets the National Board for Medical Interpreter Certification training requirement and prepares you to pass the certification exam. For information on certification prerequisites visit http://www.certifiedmedicalinterpreters.org/prerequisites

Because a language assessment is required, students must register at least two weeks in advance.

This program is offered in collaboration with TransFluenci EDU, a leader in the medical interpreter training field and is taught by an experienced medical interpreter.

Fee includes binder and all course materials.
