Opportunity: Medical Interpreting Training at St. Lukes!


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, June 3 and Saturday, June 10 

both days are from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Enrollment deadline is Wednesday, May 31st.

Interested candidates should contact Maribel Fiol at maribel.fiol@mountsinai.org.
