TCC’s Medical Laboratory Technician program prepares you to perform screening and diagnostic tests and related duties under the supervision of a medical technologist. Medical laboratory technicians play a vital role in hospitals, diagnostic labs, physicians’ offices, blood banks and other health screening centers, helping with prevention and diagnoses of diseases such as cancer and diabetes. The tests performed by lab technicians help physicians verify the causes of an illness, make medical decisions and determine treatment options.
Our program is nationally accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Laboratory Science. Graduates from the TCC program receive an Associate Degree in Applied Science. Many courses within TCC’s Medical Laboratory Technician degree program may transfer to four-year colleges and universities. Once you have successfully completed the program, you are eligible to take the National Registry exam sponsored by the American Society of Clinical Pathology.
