Note taking for Healthcare Interpreters

Note-taking is an essential skill for any interpreter – whether you’re interpreting at a medical appointment, a deposition, or a conference. In this 3-hour seminar, interpreters will be introduced to the fundamentals of note-taking and discuss how note-taking aids in accuracy and helps interpreters deal with various interpreting challenges – from long speech segments to delicate discussions. Interpreters will receive guidance on various approaches to note-taking and engage in multiple practice exercises to apply newly acquired knowledge and refine their note-taking skills.

Who is teaching? Yuliya Speroff is a Russian-English CoreCHI™ and DSHS-certified healthcare interpreter. Yuliya first started interpreting 10 years ago in her hometown of Novosibirsk, Russia and has since interpreted in a variety of settings – from a fighter jet factory to a live brain surgery, and most recently at a number of hospitals in Seattle. Yuliya also holds an MA in Business Management and is certified as both an English and a Russian language instructor with more than 10 years of teaching experience. Yuliya’s The Medical Interpreter Blog focuses on providing medical interpreters with resources and information for continuous professional development.
