The Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) program prepares students to perform clinical laboratory procedures in chemistry, hematology, microbiology and immunohematology that may be used in the maintenance of health and the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Coursework emphasizes mathematical and scientific concepts related to specimen collection, laboratory testing and procedures, quality assurance and reporting/recording and interpreting findings involving tissue, blood and body fluids. Graduates may be eligible to take examinations given by the Board of Certification of the American Society for Clinical Pathology. Employment opportunities include laboratories in hospitals, medical offices, industry and research facilities.
The program-specific selection procedure for MLT is a two-part process using both a first-come, first-served process and general education class completion ranking. Those applicants with the most general education courses completed with a "C" or better and with the earliest program application submission date will be selected to begin MLT classes. The program application deadline is May 15 each year.
