Introduction to Medical Interpreting

This workshop in medical interpreting is offered in English for students of all language combinations and covers medical terminology, human anatomy and physiology.

It is a must for those who plan to get into medical interpreting and a refresher for exam takers who have already received training in medical interpreting.

The workshop has four sessions that are designed to be taken in sequence. However, students have the option to register for sessions individually. Students who have successfully completed all four sessions will receive a Introduction to Medical Interpreting letter of completion.
