medical laboratory technology

The Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) program at Washington State, will train you in the behind-the-scenes laboratory of the healthcare industry. MLTs are a critical component of a functioning healthcare facility. Our graduates work under the supervision of physicians, lab managers or lab technologists to conduct lab tests on specimens. The work they do behind-the-scenes helps doctors detect diseases or illnesses and determine treatment options. We've added an Online Medical Laboratory Technology degree. Courses are offered 100% online. You can earn your degree from the comforts of your home without ever having to come to campus.

A shortage in the field has resulted in great employment opportunity for Med Lab Techs and government statistics indicate an 18% increase in this occupation through 2024.

While MLTs commonly work in hospitals, this career path offers diverse job opportunities, not all of which require patient contact, including working in a hospital lab, clinic, doctor’s office, or an industrial lab.
