The Medical Laboratory Technician plays a vital role in patient care by performing laboratory testing to provide diagnostic evidence of health and disease.  Medical Laboratory Technicians are trained in all major areas of the clinical laboratory, including Hematology, Immunology, Microbiology, Body Fluids, Blood Banking, Clinical Chemistry, and Histology. 

Tasks performed by these professionals include examining microscopic specimens, cross-matching donated units of blood, identifying microorganisms in infections, or operating computers and complex laboratory instrumentation. 

Employers include:  hospital laboratories, physician offices, pharmaceutical companies, research facilities, armed forces, and veterinary clinics.  Technicians may advance through education to levels of Medical Technologist or Specialist.

Wherever they work, the technicians and technologist in this field share a strong desire to help others, a love of challenge and responsibility, and the ability to complete a wide variety of scientific tests accurately and reliably.

Pre-admission advisement is recommended.
