Prepare for national medical interpreter certification! This unique handbook is not just a list of terminology: it is a practical study guide.

The book supports a one-day workshop on Medical Terminology for Interpreters offered by CCC since 2007, yet  it can be used for independent study of medical terminology. A tool to prepare for medical interpreter certification, it is especially helpful for interpreters who wish to study in pairs. 

The book includes tables and activities that cover Greek and Latin roots and affixes, medical specialties, six body systems (with some anatomy and physiology), diseases and disorders, symptoms, medical abbreviations and more. It also includes Spanish translations for most terms and activities included in the book; however, this handbook may also be used by interpreters who speak any other language.

An invaluable resource for anyone preparing for medical interpreter certification!
