Interpreters form a vital link in providing better healthcare. This two-semester program prepares you for employment to facilitate communication between patients with limited English proficiency and medical personnel. Classes are taught at MATC's Health Education Center (HEC), 1311 North Sixth Street.

Career Outlook: The increasing need for professional medical interpreters can be attributed to our community's changing demographics, the need to provide quality care through effective communication, and federal laws requiring language assistive services.
