The Center for Health Impact is a leading provider of workforce development and training for Community Health Workers (CHWs), Medical Interpreters, and other health professionals. Through our in-person and online courses, we equip our students with the practical skills to facilitate equal access to health care for those whose first language isn’t English.
Medical Interpreter Training
This in-depth training course provides participants with essential principles, methods, and competencies (both knowledge and skills-based) for delivering effective, reliable, and comprehensive interpretation in clinical and human service settings. The course explores contemporary issues in the field of medical interpretation including immigration trends, legal mandates, and certification.
The Center for Health Impact has been a leader in CHW workforce development for decades. Our Outreach Worker Training Institute (OWTI) is a career-focused, college supported educational pipeline for Community Health Workers, Patient Navigators, and CHW supervisors working in health and other human services settings.
We offer customized training for organizations and funders to address the needs of their employees, clients and communities. These may include a focus on specific health topics (e.g., youth sexual health; opioid use and treatment; behavioral health) or specific competencies (e.g., community outreach; navigating the health care system).
