Many organizations have multi-lingual staff who could serve as interpreters – with the proper training. University of Michigan Health Services (UMHS) Interpreter Services offers a course – Medical Terminology & Body Systems – to teach your staff the skills they need to interpret competently. Mastering complex medical terms can be hard. Our Medical Terminology and Body Systems course makes it easier. This course is open to everyone, and the materials and instructions are presented in English only.
This 40 hour course teaches the Word-Building technique – a quick and easy way to learn challenging terminology. The class also teaches basic medical knowledge, preparing interpreters to work in healthcare settings and pass medical interpreter certification exams. It is open to everyone, and the materials and instructions are presented in English only.
The course costs $280 ($265 for UMHS interpreters). Books and lunch are included if you take the full course.
