Resources For Prospective Medical Interpreters
The following resources are a good starting point to obtain information about Medical Interpreting, medical topics that interpreters need to know, and training and education programs available. We do not endorse any particular training program and encourage prospective medical interpreters to thoroughly research training programs available.
