Results of the 2017 Job Analysis Study of the Certified Medical Interpreter are now available!

The job analysis described in this report was conducted in 2017 at the request of the National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters (NBCMI). The purpose of the study was to describe the job activities of a certified medical interpreter in sufficient detail to provide a basis for updating professional, job-related oral and written certification examinations. The NBCMI Job Analysis Advisory Committee (JAAC) conducted the activities necessary to identify job responsibilities and to develop specifications for a Certified Medical Interpreter (CMI) certification examination. The JAAC represented varied regions and practice settings. All JAAC members were experts in the duties and activities associated with the profession. The study involved developing job task and knowledge lists and survey, distributing the survey, and analyzing the survey responses. Specifications for a Certified Medical Interpreter certification examination were developed based on survey responses.
