A Medical Laboratory Technician associate degree combines science and medicine

If you are interested in a career that involves science and medicine, consider working in a medical laboratory or clinical setting. Laboratory tests are an integral part of the diagnostic evaluation of any patient, and constitute up to 80% of a physician's diagnosis and treatment choices. MLTs are employed in hospitals, physician offices, reference laboratories and research laboratories.

Spencerian's Medical Laboratory Technician program utilizes industry-standard laboratories and medical equipment and provides you with clinical experience at a local hospital affiliate. Our program can be completed in 24 months in our day classes.

The Medical Laboratory Technician AAS degree program is accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). Graduates of the program will be eligible to sit for the American Medical Technologists (AMT) certification examination for Medical Laboratory Technology.
