Medical Laboratory Technician (A.A.S.)

A.A.S. Degree: 73 Hours

Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) is a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree designed to prepare individuals for clinical laboratory employment. A medical laboratory technician performs a wide variety of medical laboratory tests on blood, urine and other bodily fluids that assist physicians in making diagnostic and therapeutic decisions. In addition to employment in hospital and clinical laboratories, graduates can pursue positions in research, blood centers, medical equipment sales and technical support. The program will include clinical experience in area medical facilities along with the classroom and laboratory education provided on campus.

The job opportunities for MLTs are excellent, both nationally and locally, as the number of job openings currently exceeds the number of qualified job seekers. The program will begin in June with an application deadline of February 15. Contact the Allied Health office or visit the website otc.edu/alliedhealth for an application packet.
