I was taking the Medical Interpreter Training course during last two months that was a real challenge for me. But thanks to the well structured program prepared by a very experienced interpreters’ team we had a great chance to learn loads of terminology in a practical, helpful manner.
Real life situations we watched in the videos were followed by live commentaries of our instructors who were always ready to answer various students’ questions. All the sources and materials we were provided with were well thought out and directed and led us to the final goal.
Now after a successful course completion I hope to find a part time job with some of the hospitals or agencies.
Thank you for connecting nations, languages and cultures for obtaining the best way to match people’s needs!
The instructors in all Medical Interpreter Training classes were excellent: knowledgeable, personable, warm, and funny. They were all experienced Medical Interpreters and shared their insights and experiences with us students, which is something extremely valuable and not obtainable in ways other than through human interaction.
Having now finished the course, I realize how much I didn’t know before I started it, and also how much I still have to learn as I do the actual work as an interpreter. I would like to say a big THANK YOU to my teachers and to the helpful admins who were always there to answer students’ logistical and technical questions.

I took the Medical Interpreting training course last year and I can certainly say it was one of the best decisions ever. All the teachers are amazing and flexible to the student’s needs. I honestly felt, from all of them, and specially from our Portuguese teacher Aura Siewert, that the main priority was making sure that we left prepared to become the best professionals we could be and for that I am truly grateful.
After completing the program, I gained the confidence to become a freelance interpreter and now work with several agencies and hospitals. This was such a good experience that I recently came back to receive the legal interpretation training and plan, in the future, to attend the Business and Community training.
Joseanne Lopes, Portuguese Medical & Community Interpreter
Thank you very much for accepting me into the course, and furthermore teaching so well.
Your weekly classes were exciting and were a great source of practice for me, especially since Russian is not my native language.
I was the odd one out in your group. But thanks for all the kind words, encouragement and support during the course..
Your team has done a fantastic job on organizing, executing and adapting Medical interpreter Training to online Zoom format over a very short period of time, given the circumstances.
Please let me know if I can be of any service to you, and keep me in your good books for any opportunities that might come your way that might be a fit for me.
