    Maternal-Fetal Medicine Vocabulary for Interpreters


    DESCRIPTION:

    The field of Maternal-Fetal Medicine is increasingly more important as 30% of pregnancies require these services. Therefore, interpreters are instrumental to help communicate complex information to patients whose primary language is not English. 


    LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

    1. Familiarize interpreters with common terms used in Obstetrics and Maternal-Fetal Medicine
    2. Understand the most common procedures used in Maternal-Fetal Medicine 
    3. Discuss the role of interpreters in this type of patient counseling sessions


      PRESENTER: STEPHEN CONTAG, M.D.

      Stephen Contag, M.D. is a Maternal-Fetal Medicine physician who specializes in women’s health and pregnancy and birth. Dr. Contag is also an associate professor at the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health at the University of Minnesota Medical School. His training includes a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Hospital Isidro Ayora in Quito, Ecuador, and another residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He completed a fellowship in Maternal-Fetal Medicine at Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He is a member of the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology and was recognized in Minnesota Monthly "Top Doctor" in 2019. Dr. Contag is fluent in English and Spanish.
