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.
