Medical Laboratory Technology
The Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) Curriculum prepares individuals to perform clinical laboratory procedures in chemistry, hematology, microbiology, and immunohematology that may be used in the maintenance of health and diagnosis/treatment of disease.
Course work emphasizes mathematical and scientific concepts related to specimen collection, laboratory testing and procedures, quality assurance, and reporting/recording and interpreting findings involving tissues, blood, and body fluids.
Graduates may be eligible to take examinations given by the Board of Certification for Medical Technologists of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists. Employment opportunities include laboratories in hospitals, medical offices, industry, and research facilities.
Because the use of computers is integral to this curriculum, some courses are delivered in an online format.
The MLT Program at Sandhills is accredited by National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences, 5600 N. River Road, Suite 720, Rosemont, IL 60018, (847) 939-3597, (773) 714-8880, (773) 714-8886 (FAX), firstname.lastname@example.org
