Medical Laboratory Technology Admissions
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.
