Medical Interpreter Information Initiative

Welcome!

The purpose of the Medical Interpreter Information Initiative is to create a forum for collaboration and discussion, as well as to serve as a source of information related to current issues faced by medical interpreters. The initiative targets the linguistic, cultural and professional needs related to healthcare interpreting. The Interpreters Division (ID) and the Medical Division (MD) share more than 2,000 members, thus a collaborative effort is necessary to provide various sources of information. By gathering the expertise of our members, we will re-define and update both division websites. Users will be able to utilize resources found on the ID or MD website and share articles on best practices with potential clients. We hope the Initiative will provide a sense of community among MD and ID members who are medical interpreters, as well as individuals who are considering joining the profession.
