All Modules in a Bundle
The main goal of this 40- hour training program is to develop your skills and competency not just to take a certification exam, but also to achieve the necessary level of knowledge to effectively perform the duties of a medical interpreter in the real world.
This program focuses on the practice and application of knowledge through realistic simulated medical encounters. You will have the opportunity to rehearse and discover new vocabulary by interpreting medical documents, narrations and doctor-patient conversations as if you were in an actual medical encounter. This course is taught in English only; however, you will be interpreting from English into your target language. The skills and technique you’ll learn can be applied to any language.
The educational objectives of this program are derived from the guidelines and requirements outlined by the major medical interpreting organizations and certifying entities, especially the National Standards for Healthcare Interpreting Programs issued by the National Council on Interpreting in Health Care (NCIHC).
The perfect blend of hundreds of multiple-choice questions with the practice of challenging simulated medical encounters will help you be prepared for the written and oral certification exam. Upon completion of this program you’ll feel confident and pleased to know that you not only have reached your learning goals, but also advanced beyond an entry level. The 40-hour course together with bonus courses amount to more than 60 hours of superb training material.
Please note that the medical terminology courses are translated into: Arabic, Mandarin, French, Russian, and Vietnamese.
