Medical Essentials

The Medical Essentials self-study course is a perfect follow-up to the Medical Interpretools©. These exercises cover a wide range of medical conditions, carefully chosen to illustrate the range of topics an English<>Spanish interpreter is likely to encounter in a professional environment and are prevalent in the Latino community. Each exercise is based on authentic medical documents and transcripts.

Together, these materials make a useful and complete practice package for self-study in the consecutive, sight, and simultaneous modes of medical interpretation.

The Medical Essentials volume includes the sound files for all exercises, printed material containing complete scripts for all consecutive and simultaneous exercises, as well as documents for all sight translations. Glossaries specific to each exercise are also provided.
