Empower yourself by demonstrating your language skills so that you can advocate for yourself and your patients as a bilingual provider
CanopyCredential is the only scenario-based medical proficiency assessment that was specifically designed to align with ACA Section 1557. Employing a simulated oral proficiency interview (SOPI) approach and developed by a team of linguists and psychometricians, CanopyCredential enables clinicians to demonstrate that they can effectively, accurately, and impartially communicate in a non-English language through spoken language skills and in real-life patient scenarios.
Scaling the Proficiency Ladder
CanopyCredential provides meaningful feedback for exam-takers, giving them the scaffolding to climb the proficiency scale for continuous improvement. Even if someone has not achieved qualified bilingual staff (QBS) status, the CanopyCredential Scorecard offers a nuanced breakdown of your proficiency in the form of ‘can do’ statements so that you are mindful of your strengths and limitations when interacting with patients with limited English proficiency.
