The Medical Laboratory Technology program prepares students for employment as medical laboratory technicians. Medical laboratory technicians perform a wide variety of routine diagnostic and prognostic laboratory procedures in the health care setting. Students gain both theoretical and practical lab experience analyzing the chemistry, cellular composition, microbial flora, and immunological components of body fluids and tissues.
The Medical Laboratory Technology program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for the Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).
Upon graduation, students are eligible to take a national certifying examination, earning the designation Medical Laboratory Technnologist (MLT) by the American Society for Clinical Pathology.
