    NOTIS presents
    Medical Terminology for Medical Interpreters and Translators

    This is an engaging and practical 8-hour workshop on medical terminology, covering terms related to anatomy, physiology, pathology, treatment, providers and acronyms. This is an excellent workshop for all healthcare interpreters and for translators new to the healthcare arena. The focus is on general medical terminology as well as specific areas such as cardiology, nephrology, and neurology. You will have ample opportunities during the class to review and practice the material presented.

    Joe Tein is a DSHS-certified medical interpreter and a Washington State certified court interpreter. He holds a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology and is also a freelance medical translator, working from Spanish and Italian into English. Mr. Tein is the creator of the Washington AOC Court Interpreters’ English-Spanish glossary of legal terms, and is the second author of the most comprehensive Italian medical acronym website ( He has taught numerous classes for medical and court interpreters over the years, both in person and through online webinars. A participant in one of his recent classes commented: “Joe has a way of teaching a lot of material in an interesting manner that keeps the students engaged.”
