medical laboratory technology

The Medical Laboratory Technology program at Washington State, will train you in the behind-the-scenes laboratory of the healthcare industry. Medical Laboratory Technicians 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 Medical Laboratory Technicians 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.
