Medical Laboratory Technology Degree – Work in a Technologically Advanced Healthcare Lab as an MLT

The Medical Laboratory Technology Degree Program at NWHSU prepares you for technologically advanced healthcare environments. Medical Lab Technicians (MLTs) perform extensive laboratory procedures that aid in disease prevention, diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment. At NWHSU, we prepare you to use cutting-edge technology to provide information that will improve the health and wellness of your patients.

A Career for Detail-Oriented Science Lovers

What qualities would make someone a good MLT? It’s a great career for people who want to make a difference in patients’ lives, but don’t necessarily want to interact with patients every day. 

Would you be a successful MLT? Ask yourself, do you love: 

  • Science 
  • Problem Solving 
  • Detail-Oriented Projects  
  • Analytical Thinking  
  • Working behind-the-scenes (versus with patients) 

If that sounds like you, this could be a great career to consider. 

At NWHSU, a career as an MLT is within reach

We know it can feel daunting to go back to school. That’s why we’ve ensured that our program can work with your life. Our MLT schedule is built for students who are working, taking care of family, or balancing other priorities. You can also enter the program directly out of high school.  

Most students only need to come to campus one day per week. If you’re committed to becoming an MLT, we will work with you to make it happen.
