 Medical Laboratory Technician

Prepare for a career as a medical laboratory
technician in hospitals, clinics and doctors' offices. In
the laboratory, the MLT and CLT perform analytical
procedures under the supervision of a medical technologist
or physician. Career potential also exists in idemiology,
forensic medicine and biomedical manufacturing.
As this is a new program, accreditation through the National
Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science (NAACLS)
is in progress. A combination of fundamental laboratory
techniques and clinical experience prepares graduates for
work in laboratories serving the health care sector. The
final semester of the program is a clinical experience in
laboratories in community healthcare facilities. Students
must petition to enter the clinical MLT classes, and should
anticipate the possibility of traveling to complete the
clinical experience.
Graduates of the program qualify for both the American
Society of Clinical Pathologists Board of Registry and the
National Certification Agency for Laboratory Personnel
certification exams for medical laboratory technicians
and clinical laboratory technicians, respectively, under the
direction of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists
and the American Society of Clinical Laboratory Science.
Prior to enrolling in Medical Laboratory Technician core
program (513) courses, students must complete an online
criminal background check. There is an additional
fee associated with the background check process.
