Medical Interpreting Series

  • Raleigh Regional Center 4900 Waters Edge Drive Raleigh, NC, 27606 United States (map)

Paul May will be the presenter for those workshops.  He is Deaf and has been teaching ASl for at least 17 years now.  He received the formal training to be a presenter on Medical Interpreting from CATIE (www.heathcareinterpreting.org).  Paul will be showing you how to describe the body parts, procedures, and others using classifiers and ASL linguistics.

The workshop will cover all topics on those following systems: Digestive, Urinary, Nervous, Lymphatic, Reproductive, Endocrine, Oral Health and DCS.  The PowerPoint will show many images of that body part, disorders-diseases, procedures.  Then the participants will do role-play those topics as "a doctor," an interpreter, a "Deaf Patient," and observer(s). 

Each workshop session will be 0.4 or 0.3 separately which will mean that you will need to sign in each time you come in the morning or afternoon.  You will receive a certificate showing CEUs or 3-/4-Hours' worth of training from EACH session.
