Working as an onsite interpreter in a healthcare setting provides professionals the opportunity to help others, enjoy the flexibility and grow their careers. Learn why a Medical Interpreter Job might be the best fit for you.
Professional medical interpreters serve as a voice for patients, enabling meaningful communication for patients and clinicians through joyful events, such as the birth of a healthy baby or a successful surgery. These same professionals have the duty of interpreting during stressful encounters as well, which over time can result in vicarious trauma.
Medical interpreters play an integral role in healthcare delivery, facilitating communication between patients who do not speak English or are deaf or hard of hearing with physicians, nurses and other professionals delivering care.
