In this 3-hour workshop, through discussion, lecture, and hands-on exercises, students of medical interpreting will learn to approach their note-taking techniques in a methodical way. They will analyze output, compare their notes to the original utterance, and come away from the class better equipped to interpret in the consecutive mode in a medical setting.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will:
- Review how to use consecutive notes in a medical setting.
- Practice creating notes that reflect analysis.
- Demonstrate paying attention to key words, structure, and making ideas pop off the page.
