  • Support CCHI

    CCHI accepts monetary and in-kind support from private and public organizations and individuals to pursue the administration and development of a national, valid, credible, and vendor-neutral certification program for healthcare interpreters. Thank you!

  • Current Initiatives

    Medical interpreters, like other members of the patient care team, encounter multiple instances of ethical and professional dilemmas during their day-to-day practice. CCHI is managing the Repository of Critical Incident Reports (CIRs) to offer a mechanism for sharing such instances in a systemic and public manner. We encourage all medical interpreters, managers of language services, and interpreter educators to submit CIRs for public review and consideration.

  • National Healthcare Interpreter Registry

    Search this National Registry of CCHI-certified medical interpreters and applicants who are in the process of obtaining certification. This Registry is intended for credential verification purposes. Per CCHI’s privacy policy, certificants and applicants choose if they wish to display their email address in the Registry; CCHI respects their decision.

  • Disciplinary Sanctions

    The information reported on the Disciplinary Sanctions page includes only cases where the applicant, candidate, or certificant received a publicly reportable sanction. CCHI reserves the right to change which types of sanctions are published on this page.

    Individuals with suspensions and revocations are strictly prohibited from representing themselves as credentialed by CCHI during the period of suspension or revocation.
