Introduction to Medical Interpreting

While many interpreters work in medical settings, few have had training that prepares them for the variety of situations that they face.  If you are interested in medical interpreting, but lack experience and/or confidence, this is for you.  If you currently work in medical settings, but want to learn tricks to make your job easier, join us.  Medical interpreting is a specialized area and requires specialized skills.  While some basic medical signs will be discussed, this workshop will focus more on best practices regarding protocol and procedures for medical interpreting and ways to prepare for medical assignments.  Presenter will explain how to navigate the medical arena so you are more prepared to function in these settings.  Role play scenarios and sight translation will be used for medical interpreting practice.
