The Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) performs a wide variety of routine and specialized diagnostic and screening procedures to provide the physician with accurate results. These results are used by the physician to diagnose, treat, and subsequently monitor patient progress. As medical investigators, medical laboratory technicians perform blood collection techniques, operate state-of-the-art instruments, computers, and examine specimens under the microscope.
The MLT program is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in a wide variety of healthcare laboratory settings. Upon graduation, students are eligible to take national certifying examinations, earning the designation Medical Laboratory Technician by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) or Clinical Laboratory Technician.
The Medical Laboratory Technology Program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science (NAACLS)
