Medical Laboratory Technology
The Medical Laboratory Technology curriculum is a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree program of study that prepares individuals to work in a medical laboratory. As members of the health care delivery team, clinical laboratory personnel are responsible for assuring reliable and accurate laboratory test results that contribute to the diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and prevention of physiological and pathological conditions. This program is designed to meet the standards and requirements for careers in clinical laboratory science. At career entry, the medical laboratory technician/clinical laboratory technician will be able to perform routine clinical laboratory tests (such as hematology, clinical chemistry, immunohematology, microbiology, serology/immunology, coagulation, and urinalysis) as the primary analyst making specimen-oriented decisions on pre-determined criteria. Upon successful completion of the technical program, the student will be eligible to take a national certification examination. Outcome measures for the MLT program include: Board of Certification (BOC) pass rate for graduates from 2015 – 2017 is 100%, the job placement rate for graduates from 2015 – 2017 is 100%, the program graduation rate for 2015 – 2017 is 97% and the program attrition rate for 2014 – 2016 is 10%.
