Interpreting Cardiology for Spanish Interpreters 

This 6-hour workshop will cover essential terminology of the heart and circulatory system in English and Spanish. We will study terms associated with the anatomy and function of the cardiovascular system, as well as the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. There will be ample opportunities to review and practice the material through written exercises and oral practice. This workshop will help you gain a deeper understanding of the function of the heart, and increase your ability to interpret the terminology related to the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disorders. This is an excellent training for medical interpreters, both experienced and new, as well as court interpreters who may encounter these terms in their work.
