Today in the US, the number of patients whose primary language is not English is growing rapidly, and more federal and state laws are requiring that health care providers offer meaningful language assistance services. As a result, organizations that serve patients with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) are likely to experience a higher demand for qualified medical interpreters in many languages.
But how can we address this important issue in a practical way?
We know that any type of extended education or training can add hours to already busy schedules, for both employers and staff. The high cost of training a large number of employees is also a serious consideration. Medical Interpreting Training School (MITS) is the less stressful route all around—the heart of our business is efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
Our 40-hour training programs can be completed in as little as six days or as long as twelve months. You can have control over the program; as you can set the time for the course to be completed and even check your staff’s progress online. All this without the hassle of arranging meetings on specific dates and for long hours. Your employees will enjoy the opportunity to take this course at their own pace and from any location.
In addition to the affordability and flexibility of our programs, you and your employees can rest assured that the quality of training they are receiving is top-notch. We based our programs on the guidelines and requirements outlined by the National Council on Interpreting in Health Care (NCIHC).
Our 40-hour certificate programs are recognized by Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI) and by the National Board of Certified Medical Interpreters (NBCMI) as a prerequisite to applying for their certifications. Furthermore, MITS is the preferred training provider for many healthcare centers, universities, states’ healthcare services, insurance companies, and language agencies across the country.
