This is a comprehensive and intensive 60-Hour Program that is completed online within a 6-Week time period. The program is language-specific, which means that the student will complete lessons in both languages and will be evaluated on medical knowledge and interpreting skills in both languages. Our instructors/mentors are healthcare professionals (physicans, nurses, therapists) and certified medical interpreters (CHI/CMIs). This is an instructor-guided online program with conference calls for practice and assessment. The student must meet the minimum language and education requirements and have computer and Internet skills to be able to complete the program successfully. Attendance and participation in at least 80% of weekly conference calls are required. A candidate must be accepted into the program before enrollment.
