Medical Laboratory Technology

Medical Laboratory Technology is a profession that combines the challenges and rewards of both medicine and science. A Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) is concerned with the accurate performance of laboratory tests to determine the absence, presence, extent and cause of disease. Various types of sophisticated, computerized instruments are utilized to analyze blood and body fluids. As a vital member of the healthcare team, he/she provides vital information used to diagnose, treat, and monitor the progress of patients.

Clinical facilities require drug screens and background checks before allowing students to participate in clinical rotation. Students participating in clinical may be required to have a drug screen at any time during their rotation. Results of background checks and drug screens will be reviewed with designated personnel at the clinical affiliate sites. To be accepted for a clinical placement, all findings must be satisfactory to all participating clinical sites. Students not accepted for clinical rotations will not be able to successfully complete the course or program. Students are required to hold current Healthcare Provider CPR certification before entering clinical rotations.

This program prepares the student to function efficiently and safely in the clinical laboratory setting. It consists of general education courses, specific MLT courses, and clinical rotations in a hospital/clinical laboratory. This diverse learning experience is designed to teach the MLT students technical and theoretical aspects of the clinical laboratory in the healthcare setting. Upon completion of the program, the graduate receives an Associate in Applied Science and is eligible to take The American Society for Clinical Pathology Board of Certification exam.

Medical Laboratory Technology graduates find rewarding careers in such work environments as hospital laboratories, doctors’ offices, outpatient clinics, minor emergency centers, veterinary offices, and industrial labs.
