What Degree Does a Medical Lab Technician Need?

Medical lab technicians are responsible for obtaining and analyzing blood and bodily fluid samples to diagnose and treat medical conditions. To become a medical lab technician, you’ll need to obtain an Associate degree from an accredited college or university. Cambridge can help.

How Do You Become a Medical Lab Technician?

First, you’ll need to obtain your high school diploma. After graduation, you’ll be able to attend an accredited medical lab assistant program such as the one offered here at Cambridge. Our Associate of Science in Medical Lab Technology will deliver the subject matter you need for success, including:

  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Chemistry
  • Hematology
  • Immunohematology
  • Microbiology

After you finish your Associate degree program, you’ll be eligible for certification through the American Medical Technologists Association. This distinction will help you stand out from the crowd when searching for your first entry-level position.

After you take and pass the required certification exam, you’ll be eligible for entry-level employment in a wide range of organizations, from hospitals to clinics.
