Introduction to Medical Interpreting

Prepare for a career in medical interpretation by developing skills that are an essential part of the job. Medical interpreting requires knowledge of interpreting techniques and modes of interpretation, theoretical concepts, ethical boundaries, healthcare systems, healthcare interpreter standards, and cultural awareness. Medical interpreters must manage the flow of the sessions, be familiar with ethical principles and cultural nuances, devise strategies to handle the challenges presented, and maintain the clinical importance of the medical encounter. Students must also pay 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 four courses in the certificate program. Registration will close two weeks prior to the start of the class.

Prerequisite: Must provide proof of proficiency in both English and Spanish at least three business days prior to starting program coursework.
