Healthcare is one of the fastest-growing professions in the United States, a trend that is expected to continue in the coming years. By earning an Associate of Applied Science in Medical Laboratory Technician Degree from Vista College, you can be fully prepared to launch a career as a Medical Laboratory Technician in as little as 18 months!*
Medical Laboratory Technicians aren’t directly involved in the administering of patient care. Instead, they play a vital behind-the-scenes role in the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses and medical conditions. As an MLT, you will use highly-advanced laboratory equipment to conduct various tests on bodily fluids and tissue samples.
You’ll also be responsible for entering the data you obtain in patients’ medical records and discussing the test results with physicians when necessary.
As a Vista College MLT student, you’ll benefit from a well-rounded training program that will prove invaluable both at the beginning of your career as well as when pursuing advancement opportunities.
You’ll receive extensive training in important areas such as medical terminology, microbiology, anatomy and physiology, and serology. In addition to classroom learning, our MLT program places heavy emphasis on laboratory training to provide you with plenty of hands-on experience that’s easily transferrable to a real-world work environment. You will also have the opportunity to participate in an externship to gain practical experience that will make you an attractive candidate to potential employers.
