The Medical Laboratory Technician program at Somerset Community College prepares graduates to work in a clinical laboratory within a hospital, health care facility or in an industrial laboratory.
Students collect patient specimens and perform tests in such areas as blood banking, clinical chemistry, hematology, microbiology, serology, and urinalysis.
Students are eligible to earn a certificate in Physician’s Office Laboratory and a certificate in Phlebotomy upon completion of the required courses. Graduates are also prepared to take the Board of Certification exam as a Medical Laboratory Technician.
The students enrolled in the MLT Program for an Associate in Applied Science Degree are eligible for the certificates as well as the degree. Students do not have to be admitted to the MLT program to complete these certificates. There will be a limited number of spaces in the courses for the certificates due to available laboratory space.
