Medical Laboratory Technician Program
Medical laboratory technicians are a vital part of the laboratory team. A medical laboratory technician performs routine tests in all areas of the clinical laboratory and searches for basic clues to the absence, presence, extent, and cause of disease.
In conjunction with Cuyahoga Community College, medical technician students are given the opportunity to complete a clinical internship at MetroHealth Medical Center. This internship is comprised of five rotations in each of the following disciplines of clinical laboratory science:
- Transfusion Medicine
The students work under the supervision of a practicing medical technologist to apply the theoretical knowledge and laboratory skills learned in the academic setting to the clinical setting. Upon graduation with an associates degree, and passing the Clinical Board Registry, the student receives certification as a medical laboratory technician under the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP).
