Class Description:

Medical interpreters are in great demand both in-person and remotely by video or phone. Interpreters can elect to work for a hospital, school, or state agency, or as contractors with many agencies throughout the country. They can also elect to work remotely from home where they can work independently and make their own hours.

Open to all languages, this 60-hour program provides a working knowledge of medical interpreting, including standards of practice, ethics, HIPAA regulations, cultural competency, and medical terminology/vocabulary.

The course provides intense practice via oral role plays on a variety of medical topics. The student will also be introduced to VRI (video remote interpreting) and OPI (Over the Phone Interpreting).

Offered in collaboration with TransFluenci EDU, this 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. 

Students must be fully bilingual and must be fluent in English and one other language.

The language assessment coordinator will reach out to you by phone prior to the start of class for an assessment in the language you designated when you registered. You must pass the language assessment, to meet program requirements. You will also be provided with the class book order information, (book price $39.95) is not included in the class price.

This program meets the National Board for Medical Interpreter Certification training requirement and prepares you to pass the national certification exam. Upon completion of this course, students may elect to apply for national certification.
