Posted April 24, 2009
The important role of medical interpreters in patient care at Stanford Hospital was highlighted in an article that appeared in the Stanford Report this week -- as well as the fact that a number of Stanford's interpreters were trained at the Monterey Institute. As the article points out, "Many of the Stanford interpreters have received intensive training in medical terminology, and some hold degrees in science or in formal interpreting and translation from the Monterey Institute of International Studies." The article provides an overview of Stanford Hospital's interpreter services program, which includes 30 or more interpreters who work with patients and their families on site at the hospital, and routinely handles assignments in Spanish, Russian, Mandarin, Japanese, and several other languages.
