Medical Terminology for Interpreter

The thought of having to learn medical terms makes you shy away from becoming a medical interpreter?

If you are a translator or an interpreter who are intimidated by the concept of medical terminology, come try this lively, fun-filled workshop. 

Workshop host Young Joe will share valuable tips on learning medical terms without being overwhelmed by them.

Guest speaker: Dr Nathan Wnuk, Interventional Radiologist at Yuma Regional Medical Center in Arizona, USA
