"Dr. Smith is the attending physician at St. Francis Hospital, former ER director at St. Joseph's hospital, medical director for the fire, EMS, and police in the city of Yonkers. Dr. Smith is American, graduated from an American medical school and received American residency training. He shares the similar background with most the program directors who would be interviewing us. His understanding of the American culture, language and communication skills and the U.S. health system as well as his suggestions and perspectives were cut to the point and very useful. Due to his work experience at a lot of multidisciplinary hospitals, his insight on the structure of different programs and what the programs are looking for is very valuable. Having been a Kaplan instructor in Japan and worked with foreign grads, his understanding of how we can use our cultural background towards our advantage is way above other American doctors. They truly spend a lot of time and energy on each participant. They also record your performance and send the recording file along with a detailed summary back to you. It takes them a lot of time but really makes things easier for us. This is what other training courses do not have. "
"The interview was like a real time practice. A lot of questions were asked. The goal was to well prepare you for the actual interview day. It is also extremely helpful to observe and learn from other participants. Seeing how other people construct their answers and learning from their feedback and suggestions benefited me a lot. I don't regret traveling this far for the workshop."
Book with the Medical Interpreter Training for Bilingual Residency Candidates for only $1169! An instant saving of $159.
This 48-hour medical interpreter training is specifically designed for residency candidates. The training is aimed to not only help residency applicants capitalize on their language skills and cultural diversity, but also to give them a practical understanding of hospital operation and the healthcare system in the U.S. and to make them more comfortable with "talking medical" in English. Graduates can be referred to several teaching hospitals in New York to volunteer as medical interpreters. It provides a great platform for residency candidates to network, to observe and to familiarize with the medical setting and medical communication.
We have heard that residency candidates say how they helped "translate" during their externships, but do you know what you did was not "translation"? We have heard people say how they used google translate or other apps to communicate with their patients to show their cultural competency, but do you know that is actually illegal and should be avoided? The percentage of limited English proficient patients at some New York hospitals can be as high as 60% to 70%, and programs need you to diversify the program and to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate care to these patients without getting into any legal trouble. Knowing how is the key, and we will help you get there.
