Medical Laboratory Technicians prepare and analyze specimens using body fluids and cells. They use microscopes and other sophisticated laboratory equipment and computerized instruments to test and analyze results. Lab technicians usually work under the supervision of medical and clinical laboratory technologists.
The Medical Laboratory Technician program at Manhattan Tech uses a blended instructional model. Lectures are online and accessed through Manhattan Tech’s learning management system. Laboratory and clinical skills training is provided in a traditional face-to-face format, using instruments and equipment found in the modern laboratory.
This program aligns with the Kansas Board of Regents Curriculum.
