The most common areas in medicine which require interpreters are emergency medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics and/or family practice, cardiolody, and orthopedics.
As a pre-med student and future medical student, I am well versed in these areas and terminology. I have helped various patients who have needed interpreting, but I believe that working in different parts of the hospital and studying these areas with more focus than others will help me become a good interpreter.
Some good strategies to use can be using homonyms and memorization. But in my experience, the more I work in an area or on a particular subject, the better I become in it – repetion is key!
