Associate in Applied Science
Laboratory Technology is the exciting healthcare profession that analyzes the
chemical and cellular composition of blood and body fluids. MLTs are the medical
investigators of medicine! They carefully perform laboratory procedures to
discover clues of disease. It’s the MLT who first sees cancer cells under the
microscope, discovers the bacteria that causes an infection and prescribes a
unit of blood for a bleeding patient. They work behind the scenes to help save
the trauma patient without having to provide direct patient care. MLTs find
great satisfaction in their work, knowing that they help others and save lives.
placement in this program is fantastic! The overall job placement rate since
the program began is 96% and most years 100% of graduates are employed within a
few weeks of graduation. There is a national shortage of MLTs and with the
aging population in our coastal region, the local demand for laboratory
professionals is growing.
Employment opportunities include local healthcare laboratories in hospitals,
medical offices, industry and research facilities.
work emphasizes scientific and mathematical concepts in microbiology,
hematology, microbiology and chemistry. Students are encouraged to contact
admission counselors early so that there will be time to complete pre-requisite
courses, including MLT 110, and other requirements before fall semester. Graduates
are eligible to take the national certification exam provided by the American
Society for Clinical Pathology. The program is nationally accredited which
helps ensure the quality of the program.
