What is a Medical Interpreter?

A medical interpreter is someone who can break language barriers by using their linguistic skills to provide medical interpreting services to patients and medical professionals.

This program provides hybrid (classroom and online) instruction. During this course participants build on interpreting skills, acquire knowledge specific to anatomy and psychology, develop terminology focused on the human body and much more. Participants must be fluent in both English and a second language.
