Michigan Medicine treats thousands of Deaf, Deaf/Blind, Hard of Hearing, and Limited English Proficient (LEP) patients each year. For them, a visit to the doctor can be confusing and even dangerous without a trained Medical Interpreter.
We have over 100 Interpreters that speak more than 70 languages. We're committed to:
Our interpreters are carefully screened and highly trained. Along with language mastery, many also have medical backgrounds. To help them enhance their skills, we offer educational options ranging from medical terminology courses to Bridging the Gap, the nation's premier medical interpreter training program.
We are dedicated to helping LEP and deaf patients enjoy equal access to outstanding health care. We welcome your suggestions on how we can best achieve this goal.
