Medical Interpreter

Recommended Posts

my uncle was doing this in California and from what he said its really good money.  I went to the training school that he went to and completed the course.  I was supposed to work with him on the down low and get paid cash but since he had a firm, one of his partners didn't approve.  So yeah, this is a good move to make decent money without having to go to school a lot.

I signed up for a training course in Chicaog. We are using the California Healthcare Interpreter Associations standards. Seems like the west coast is on the forefront of the medical interpreter progressive movement. In Chicago, I noticed is a decent gig to apply (once certified) without having any experience and earn a good wage.

that's great!  the course I took was for both court and medical interpreting.  Since in SoCal there is a high demand for bilingual people in the court system so the school I went to threw both courses together.  it was a bit more challenging but worth it in the end.  I have been trying to find a gig like that here in Texas but haven't had any luck.

How long have you been searching for a job as a medical or court interpreter? Are  you applying with an agency or hospital or doing freelance?
