Medical Lab Technician Careers + Salary Basics

The following page shows the career & education requirements, salary and job outlook for Medical Lab Technician around the country.

What We Do

A medical lab technician is responsible for the collection of samples of substances, such as tissue and body fluids, from patients. They then perform tests on these samples to analyze them, enabling physicians to make a diagnosis for their patients.

Work Environment

A medical lab technician is most likely to be employed by private, local, and state hospitals. That said, some of them work directly for diagnostic and medical laboratories, including for the pharmaceutical industry. Some work for offices of physicians and a small minority can be found within private, local, and state professional schools, universities, and colleges.

How to Become a Medical Lab Technician

A medical lab technician usually has to hold a post-secondary certificate or an associate’s degree. Those who want to be classed as medical lab technologists have to complete a bachelor’s degree. The degree that someone chooses should be in life sciences or medical technology. This generally includes education in lab management, safety procedures, lab skills, statistics, math, microbiology, biology, and chemistry. These programs are usually offered through hospital programs and universities. A very small number of these offer a one year certificate program, but admission requirements are usually very stringent. Interestingly, it is also a popular program offered by the Armed Forces, where education is provided in various laboratory disciplines, both theoretically and practically.

Training & Certification Requirements

Licensing is only required in a few states. Usually, this is needed if a medical lab technician would be interested in specializing in a certain area of laboratory work. Nevertheless, while technicians do not have to be certified in all states, it is always a preference, as it shows that they are committed to delivering high quality care. The qualifications include a general medical laboratory technician certificate, but also in specializations such as medical biology and cytotechnology. There are a number of different credentialing institutions, which almost all require candidates to have completed a program through an accredited institution, after which they will have to pass an examination. The National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science holds further details on this.
