Apply for Lab7 Healthcare | July 15 - 17, 2021
Just a little reminder before you apply: Lab7 is not a traditional training course, but rather a peer practice simulation lab for medical students and interpreters who have completed a foundational 40-hour training, a certification or have equivalent professional experience.
If this leaves you wondering if Lab7 would be a good fit for you, please go ahead and apply or email us at
and we will work it out together!
Before you sign up, we need you to know that you must commit to about 4-5 hours of pre-work ahead of the course and to attending all three days, because the simulations depend on you showing up. June 15th is the last day to apply.
That's it! Let's get started.

CEUs: CCHI, IMIA, RID
Pre-requisites: 40-hour healthcare training and at least 2 other participants in your language combination
