Interpreter Training Center

MUSC Health recognized there was a lack of opportunities available for formal training for health care interpreters and continued learning for interpreters and translators within the state. So we established the Interpreter Training Center for medical and community interpreters to address this need. We are currently the only organization in South Carolina providing ongoing continuing education for medical interpreters.

These programs are designed to accommodate the needs of all levels of multilingual learners. We offer educational options ranging from fundamentals of interpreting to specialize topics, such as interpreting for Victim Services or Palliative Care. Interested in taking our courses and starting on the path to a career as a Medical Interpreter? Contact our office at (843) 792-9055 or email the Interpreter Training Center Coordinator at


For all Limited English Proficient (LEP) and Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) patients to experience quality healthcare services through competently trained medical interpreters.


Our mission is to provide insightful and practical development opportunities for multilingual individuals, by equipping them with the tools and resources needed to improve their linguistic, cultural, and interpreting skill sets..


Our goals include:

  1. Provide a professional framework that promotes linguistic and culturally competent health care interpreting.
  2. Identify target areas for skill development and provide opportunities to improve these skill sets.
  3. Sponsor opportunities for national credentialing.
  4. Address the demand for accessible, high-quality medical interpreting training.
