Medical Consecutive Interpreting

In consecutive interpretation, the interpreter listens to an oral statement in a source language and then renders it in the target language. Build your awareness of the cognitive processes integral to consecutive interpreting: listening, short-term memory, semantic equivalence, visual/auditory processing, thought organization, and logic. Memory development techniques, note taking, and non-verbal communication are also introduced as important elements of the process of interpreting consecutively. Apply medical consecutive interpretation techniques in a variety of practice situations with specific medical terminology. End goal is to develop professional interpreting skills and expand vocabulary in order to confidently tackle consecutive interpreting assignments in the medical field. Students must also pay for a one-time $150 book fee upon entry of first course in the program. Book fee includes workbook and all learning materials needed for all five courses in the certificate program.
