Medical ASL Level 1


Medical ASL Level 1 is the first of five courses that will allow you to advance to the Intermediate level. This course is specifically designed for medical interpreting students, medical/health profession students, and medical professionals who have basic ASL knowledge and/or have previously studied ASL. Students interested in taking this course should have Novice level proficiency, including grammar structure and basic vocabulary, as well as be interested in understanding the Deaf culture from the perspective of a healthcare professional.

Students will develop communicative proficiency and accuracy in using American Sign Language in the medical setting. This will improve the students’ ability to mediate a conversation between healthcare professionals, interpreters, and Deaf patients.

The course is very interactive, relying on the use of role play, activities, and group exercises. We will use PearDeck during the class so you will need a cell phone or tablet along with your computer for this course.

  • Hospital American Deaf Culture Quiz
