Medical Lab Technician Virtual Open House

Medical Lab Technician Virtual Open House

May 12, 2020 |

A virtual information session for anyone interested in East Central College’s new Medical Lab Technician (MLT) program will be held Monday, May 18.

Officials from the Missouri Health Professions Consortium Medical Laboratory Technician Program will hold the information session over Zoom at 7 p.m. It is open to anyone who wants to learn more about the program.

MLTs are an essential function on healthcare teams. They conduct work in the lab to examine blood and other samples, among other responsibilities, to assist physicians with test results for medical diagnoses.

ECC students completing the program will earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in Medical Laboratory Technician. This program will be administered through the Allied Health Division.

The college will offer the MLT program through the Missouri Health Professions Consortium (MHPC). It will be coordinated through Moberly Area Community College (MACC).

Students would complete the program after taking general education classes their first year and then apply for the program. Those accepted would work toward the MLT degree in their second year at the College.

MLT lectures will be online, however, the labs will be conducted three times throughout the program at the MACC campus in Mexico, Mo., and students will be placed in various clinical sites within 90 minutes of their home campus/residence.
