The job of the Medical Interpreter is challenging on multiple levels. Not only do you need to understand the culture and language of the individuals you’re interpreting for, you also need to have a firm grasp of medical terminology.
At the Upper Midwest Translators and Interpreters Association (UMTIA) the Medical Interpreting Committee provides other members and contacts the opportunity to attend sessions where you can learn about different medical concepts, conditions, and terminology.
You will receive a certificate which will state the name of the workshop, the presenter and number of hours of the workshop. You can then submit this certificate to the organizations that require continuing education units (CEU’s) for their consideration.
