Mission Statement:

The Alverno Interpreter Institute (AII) was founded by medical interpreters as a forum to disseminate information on topics of interest to practicing interpreters. The Institute fosters skill-building and continuing education through interactive workshops and enrichment sessions as a means of professional development for those at all levels of the profession.  As an entity associated with the Spanish/English Healthcare Interpretation program at Alverno College, the Institute is a venue where medical interpreters across all language pairs can gain knowledge and learn from one another, building a network of professionals.

Small groups

Participants in the Alverno Interpreter Institute enjoy presentations on topics that are current and relevant in their field.  They also engage in interactive, skill-building exercises to improve their knowledge and expand their professional network.
