The Core Medical Interpreter Training Program™ provides students with intensive training to prepare for the challenges within a growing and competitive health care marketplace.

This program is offered to bilingual or multilingual individuals, who are either currently working in health care or are interested in obtaining an entry-level credential in the field.
