The Associate of Applied Science Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) Program is designed to prepare students for employment in medical, clinical, research and public health laboratories.
The technician collects or receives patient specimens, performs many general laboratory tests, records data, and reports results to physicians to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
The MLT program combines academic general education with a concentration in basic life sciences, didactic studies in medical laboratory science and clinical training at hospital laboratories. The program requires two years, (four semesters and one summer session) of full-time study. Students with previous college work may apply for advanced placement pending evaluation of transcripts. Upon completion of the academic and clinical requirements, students will be awarded an associate degree and become eligible to take the national certification examination.
Medical laboratory technicians are employed by hospitals, clinics, doctors’ offices, veterinary clinics, research centers, colleges and universities, medical schools, government agencies and industrial medical laboratories.
