 NOTIS and Skagit Valley Hospital present 

Understanding the Language of Nephrology and Urology

This 4-hour workshop will cover essential terminology of the kidneys and urinary tract, including terms associated with the anatomy and function of these systems, and the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of urinary system disorders.  The material is presented through handouts, slide presentations and videos … you will have ample opportunities during the class to review and practice the terminology presented. This is an excellent workshop for healthcare interpreters, both new and experienced, as well as court interpreters who may encounter these medical terms in their work.
