Medical Interpreter Training

With our training programs, medical interpreters are able to facilitate communication during health care encounters and increase awareness of and respect for patients’ cultural perspectives.

The goal of the Medical Interpreter Training (MIT) Program is to assist the medical interpreter in developing the skills necessary to facilitate effective, professional, and reliable medical interpretation in the clinical setting. The MIT is available for bilingual staff working with MassHealth medical providers at hospitals, group practices, community health centers, nursing homes, and other qualified community-based organizations which provide services to MassHealth members.
