Medical Terminology for Interpreters

Prepare for national medical interpreter certification -- interpreters of all languages welcomed!

This one-day workshop on Medical Terminology for Interpreters offered by CCC since 2006 is a vital first step. Two national job surveys/analyses showed that medical terminology is a critical component of the healthcare interpreter's performance and medical terminology will be tested for both national medical interpreter certifications. Not to worry: this lively one-day workshop isn't dry.
