Medical Terminology for Interpreters 

Workshop/Course Description:

One of the fundamental skills of medical translators, interpreters and bilingual providers is to know and understand the terminology used by health care professionals. It is necessary that they are familiar with the words’ basic components in English as much as in their second language. During these two days participants will learn about the basic components of English medical terminology, and how to use them to construct the meaning of such medical terminology. The program introduces most common prefixes and suffixes, as well as roots that are related to the human anatomy.  In addition, this intensive workshop facilitates an overview of the main human biological systems and common conditions, diagnostic procedures and treatment that relate with them. This workshop is facilitated in English and is especially geared toward translators, interpreters and non-native English healthcare workers. It is language neutral.
