Mount Sinai St. Luke's Medical Interpreter training course

We are pleased to announce the Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital Language Services Fall 2016 Medical Interpreting Training.


As a medical interpreter you can make a difference!

The Language Services Department at Mount Sinai St. Luke's has developed a two day training program to enable participants  to acquire basic interpretation skills in the medical setting. Trained volunteer interpreters assist providers to meet the health care needs of our culturally diverse patients.

A trained medical interpreter contributes to better health outcomes, better communication between provider and Limited English Proficiency (LEP) patients, increased clinician and patient satisfaction, and reduced legal risks. This program meets the requirements of the New York Department of Health and adheres to federal mandates and guidelines on cultural and linguistic appropriate health care.

The training will take place at Mount Sinai St. Luke's Hospital on Saturday, October 8 and Saturday, October 15  both days are from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Enrollment deadline is Wednesday, October 5.
