INTERPRETING INTENSIVES

SimLab is open to spoken and signed language interpreters working in healthcare.

Join us in Indianapolis from July 8th to 10th, 2020!

"Something different, interesting, and feedback that's totally honest, impartial, and effective."

"A space where you can be vulnerable, and where you find unconditional support." 

-past SimLab participants

We ran our first SimLab at Desafío Lenguas in Mexico. Did you miss it? We missed you too. But we have another chance to see you this summer for SimLab Indy.


We've teamed up with the Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine to create an unparalleled practice intensive for healthcare interpreters and medical students.

SimLab Indy is an experiential exploration of best practices in communicating with patients through an interpreter. Unlike an inservice or informal talk, this event inserts interpreters into the medical school curriculum for a rare inter-professional development opportunity in the simulation lab. We're taking a break from scripted scenarios in favor of live simulation, just like in real life, but with the chance for peer and provider feedback and do-overs. We wrap up by gathering everyone around the table for moderated discussions on hot topics like language proficiency, ethical tight spots and medical school training. We round it out with a group debrief and next steps as we part ways.

We want to make SimLab accessible. So we came up with some special pricing.

The regular fee is $480, but if you sign up by April 30th, it's just $400. And, we want you to share the SimLab love with a friend. So if you both sign up, we'll take another $25 off for both of you (there's a place on the registration form for your buddy's name). We'll also have a social media contest to give away a free registration! Sign up for SimLab news below and we'll send more info!

Let's make plans! Indy's a fun little city. And it's the Midwest! So it's super affordable.

Indy is best navigated by car, whether it's your own or a rideshare. The good news is we basically have no traffic here. You can pop over to the Marian campus from the popular downtown Mass Ave or Fountain Square neighborhoods in about 20 minutes. There's lots of cool Airbnbs (linked to their respective 'hoods above) and affordable downtown hotels.

Indy has a microbrew, coffee, and restaurant scene that we're pretty proud of. Check out this "36 Hours in Indianapolis" article from the New York Times. You can read the buzz about the coffee scene here. And there are so many breweries in different neighborhoods within walking distance of each other, you couldn't visit them all even if you wanted to. Believe us. Liz has tried.

Wondering about CEUs? We're working on them for CCHI, IMIA, ICRID, and ATA.
