A.S. Medical Laboratory Technician

Why Medical Laboratory Technician?

The mission of the Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) program is to provide a high quality, learning-centered education in medical laboratory theory and practice that maximizes student learning and makes students partners in their education. Medical laboratory technicians, under supervision of a physician or medical laboratory scientist, perform general laboratory tests that aid physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. The curriculum allows a student to meet employment and transferability goals. Students receive both theoretical and experiential study, including an internship through clinical affiliate Holy Rosary Healthcare in Miles City, MT. Students should consult the catalog of the institution to which they expect to transfer and select appropriate courses in consultation with their advisor.

Goals of the Medical Laboratory Technician program are to:

  • Train competent MLTs with the knowledge and skills necessary for entry-level proficiency in all areas of medical laboratory science.
  • Provide a two-year associate degree program for students in the region.
  • Operate a program in which a maximum number of credits will fulfill requirements for four-year Medical Laboratory Science programs in the region.
