Interpreting for Health Care

In this course, students analyze and learn to apply the correct interpreting mode for different healthcare situations. They develop personalized introductions for use in interpreted sessions to provide a framework for interpretation that is clear to both providers and patients. Students learn to apply the medical code of ethics to different interpreting situations. Selecting from a list of various medical specialties, students create interpreting role plays with classmates that include appropriate introductions, interpreting modes, and terminology in both Spanish and English to simulate real-life interpretation situations. This course cultivates many of the skills needed to pass medical interpreter examinations and helps to prepare students for work as professional healthcare interpreters.
