IMIA Sets Continuing Education Standards for Medical Interpreters Worldwide

BOSTON, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Medical Interpreters Association (IMIA) announced its capability to accredit workshops to provide Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for medical interpreters, in all languages worldwide.

As the only national and international trade association by and for medical interpreters, it seems the IMIA is an appropriate "home" for a CEU Program. "We followed the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) model, which has been in place for decades. If it has worked for them, I am confident that it will work well for us as well," stated Anita Coelho Diabate, recently appointed IMIA Vice President.

This registry includes a limited list of continuing educational workshops, delivered online or in person. This new development is aimed at incentivizing more training programs to offer continuing education workshops or courses in addition to their basic programs, so that practicing medical interpreters have more options.

This initiative is also linked to national certification, which will
